It's clear to me why they refer to this as "the merry month of May" because everyone seems happy. I notice more smiles, more laughs, and more friendliness lately when I venture into the world. There is something energizing about spring. Nature feels it, both flora and fauna, and it' a palpable to one and all.
The problem is, when you live on the East End, it's a short lived joy. Because we have three weeks in May to enjoy it before the crowds and traffic become so stifling we barely enjoy the beauty around us. July and August are so busy we barely notice they're here, and then, thankfully, we have September. The season moves quickly and life is fleeting. So let's take the time to relax and enjoy this, the merry month of May. It doesn't get much better.
