Monday May 23rd 2016Tim
The month of May around here is beginning to pull itself
together, it's no longer shy, it always knew what it was
supposed to do, and for some of us it's something of a
relief that May has decided to behave like May. And
without entering yet another contest of will, I'd like
to suggest that the Masculine and the Feminine can be
applied to months of the year.
Worth noting that all months of the year in French are
Masculine which doesn't seem sufficiently spirited or
adventurous to make any sense whatsoever. And I'd argue that
so far this year, May has been a a sort of teenage boy May.
Any other year, May would have been female and she would
have worn a tiara and we'd all have had plenty of time to
prepare for the Summer Solstice which is only twenty nine
days from now.
