Merry May! I woke up at the beautiful 4:55am this morning to go see the Berkeley Morris dancers perform at Inspiration Peak in Tilden. It just isn't May Day without Morris dancing.
They danced the sun up, and then we sang a few songs and everyone did a circle dance. There was a bear, the fool, antlers, May crumbs, and lots of bells and ribbons, of course.
My favorite comment was made by a woman saying that you have to be careful about the Morris dancers: "They did a fertility dance at my wedding and.....well, I have lots of children."
