May Day Parade
May Day Parade by Heart of the Beast Theater was delayed a week because of rain last weekend.
It made for kind of a weird Mothers' Day.
I was supposed to be in it, but instead, only watched because of my duty to Ask A Librarian email.
A lot of very cool masks and some bands and some very amazing Aztec dancers were there.
I also ran into my father's cousin, whom I have seen all of a half-dozen times in my life.
They got a beautiful day today.
I have to say the HotB folks make me feel like a reactionary suburbanite, which is saying something.
Girl-child could not have imagined in her wildest dreams when she was little that she was going to become this when she grew up:
I haven't done Ask A Librarian emails on a Sunday before today (I'm covering for a co-worker). I see now that it doesn't get busy until after dinner, since the online classes have homework due at midnight on Sunday.
My approach will be that of a helpful, but not particularly sympathetic librarian.
A miracle worker I am not.
Happy Mothers' Day.
