“in all lands love is now mingled with grief and fear…”(J.R.R. Tolkien)
on May 1st, the French usually offer twigs of “muguet” – lily of the valley – symbol of friendship and joy; there’s a French saying:”en mai, fais ce qu’il te plaît! = in May, do whatever you like!” BUT as we’re still in lockdown, impossible to do what we’d like to… btw, 1st of May is also “Lei Day”(flower day) in Hawaii, honoring ancient Hawaiian traditions and sharing the “Aloha-LOVE spirit”, hence my photos taken @ Big Island-Hawaii where we do hope to return someday asap… wish you and your loved ones a peaceful and optimistic month of May!
J.R.R. Tolkien stated years ago:“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief and fear, it grows perhaps the greater.” – well, we do live in the same dangerous world due to the global pandemic, yet full of beauty and tiny joys, even though light seems to be “invisible” here and there… According to Robert Brault:”A blog is a message in a bottle, both in purpose and likely readership.” – therefore, my message to you is: take care, stay healthy and safe, folks! Btw, we had our 1st vaccine shot over 2 weeks ago, gonna have the 2nd injection(“rappel”) by mid-May.
