Yesterday May 1st, Island School students and faculty staged the very first (as far as we know...) maypole dance in celebration of May Day. Our daily evening circle was energized by a half century old ritual of celebrating the seasonal bloom of spring.  We wove and danced around our flag pole, remembering just a few months ago when short days darkened evening circle. Now, as spring is upon us, the bright colors of ribbon shown against the light blue evening skies.  [slideshow]
