799

It's post 799 and the second stanza of my May poem.


May the good be seen in others
And more patience found each minute
Sweetness guide each day's adventure
As with joy I dwell within it.


Happy Cinco de Mayo! Cinco De Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  If you are looking for something to do to celebrate this in Maine....  Well, here you go! There are, however, a great number of people of French  descent in Maine, so in some respects I would be surprised to find many celebrations here.  Like most celebrations nowadays though, it seems that we just want to celebrate regardless of the meaning or origin.

Happy May!

  1. I won't be joining in the festivities, but Cinco de Mayo is a big deal here in Denver. Enjoy celebrating this 'day before' 800!
