“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

— from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit

So let us celebrate. These next months, over the crest of spring to the heart of summer, we have music to sing and food to eat, until drums sound at the Summer Solstice in June.

Merry, heal the world its woes
