  • May Day; Ring By Spring

    May 1st, 2008
    dance  [html]
    May Day was awesome. Dancing with Points of Etiquette and Renegade Morris. Songs. Maypole in the evening with Folkdance. (And arguing with Paury Flowers about the large scale event (worthstock this year) forgetting to reserve a rain location and kicking our contra dance out of upper tarble... not so awesome) Thinking that Renegade has managed to take in six completely new dancers (me, becky, becka, finlay, maureen, laura kb) and in six six-kilosecond practices learn six dances (not that I can really do nutting girl) is pretty cool.

    Eric and Beth announced they're engaged at dinner today. Which got me thinking about the phrase "ring by spring". Sometimes, "ring by spring or your money back". People don't say it often at swat, though I've heard it some. The idea being that girls should be engaged by the end of the year. Which year, though? I think this varies interestingly. At swat it seems to be senior year. There was a phoenix column a year or two ago where a senior was pretty clearly using it like that. And laurie has used it that way. At messiah, however, it allegedly is sophomore year. And a current BYU student says there it's freshman year. More research is called for.

    Quick note on the name of this blog

    When I was 21 a friend introduced me to a volume of poems by the 14th-century Persian poet Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky. I loved them, and eventually named this blog for one of my favorite ones. At some point I read more and found that Ladinsky’s …
