For May! For May! For…

On this day in 1931, the Empire State Building was dedicated in New York City.

Tra la! It’s May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev’ryone goes
Blissfully astray.

Guenevere in Camelot

Or, if you went to my conservative Christian college in the 70s, it was allegedly the “merry” month of May.

And for what it’s worth, Eliza Doolittle didn’t “dance” all night either.

I digress.

Or do I just randomly babble incoherent thoughts?

We’re beginning the fifth month of the year.

[insert OMG where does the time go comment here]

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a flurry of activities coming up. Part of the reason, like I said on Friday,

Mugshots

why I won’t be posting here every day.

For example, I’m leaving town again on Wednesday for work trip for a board meeting, and then on to Atlanta to visit the older offspring.

Read into that what you will, but just know that I won’t be posting again this week.

After that…three more board meetings this month.

I am not making that up.

Rehearsals will be in full swing for Sound of the Guns (details below), I’ve got editing projects.

And soon, very soon, I will wrap up the 100 Day Project. I know, it’s just something silly-ish that I do. But, for an artist, even a self-taught amateur like me, there’s benefit in drawing every day.

There’s a lesson, or a post in there, but I think you know what it is.

I mean, we all know how to get to Carnegie Hall…right?

On top of the trip we’ve got a flurry of exciting events this week.

We’ve got May the 4th, Cinco de Mayo, and the Kentucky Derby.

And, I’ve heard they’re having a little party across the pond.

Something about the family jewels.

That may not be the proper Queen’s English term. Or is it now the King’s English?

Regardless, it’s a busy week and I’m making sure I have all of my Instagram ducks lined up in a row. It’s a heavy week for memes.

All that being said, it’s May. By the end of the month the pool will be open, the amusement parks will be operating on a daily basis, and the kids will be out of school.

While we’re at it, you should go ahead and start stressing over where you’re taking her for Mother’s Day. Reservations are probably already filling up.

Let’s get on with it.

I’ll see you sometime next week.
