Let us remember that the future fertility of our planet and us is directly related to how responsibly we care for it and all of its inhabitants.

On this special day I remember getting the very first maypole approved to be celebrated in a prison in the United States. The photo shown is the 10th anniversary of that event.

On the first Beltane celebration in prison after a ten year battle to get it approved, several correctional officers and staff joined inmates to twine their ribbons together that day. It was a moment in history!
I still have that pole and those ribbons.

May we all find ways to dance together in peace and harmony!
Peace & Blessings,
Patrick McCollum
