Mixed-up magical May

On Monday evening, as I came out of a work meeting at 8.40pm, I was surprised to see that it was still twilight. I drove home as the dusky, pearly light gradually deepened, becoming night by the time I'd arrived. This late evening twilight is entirely normal for this time of year, as are the trees frothing with blossom, the bursting forth of leaves and tulips and bluebells, the evident signs of spring all around me.

I am always shocked by the arrival of May. What about you? It may be that as a former Head of School, I still operate within the framework of the academic year. Once May arrives, I am acutely aware of what still needs to be accomplished by June.
