Yes, today is May Ray Day! Not Man Ray Day (Man Ray a much catchier name for the visual artist than his birth name of Emmanuel Radnitzky) or Monet, Manet, Tippee-Tippee Day Day (a line said by Jerry Seinfeld in “The Raincoats – Part 1” episode of his eponymous show), but the day we celebrate that the SUN’S FINALLY OUT. Theoretically. Oh, sure the sun may not be out today, but to quote Little Orphan Annie, “The sun will come out tomorrow!” Again, theoretically. For many people and cultures of times gone by, May Ray Day marked when to begin planting. For most of us in the Northern Hemisphere to slather on the sunblock, get outside, and enjoy the (theoretically) sun-filled day. And if it’s not sunny where you are, just wait. We have a feeling Little Orphan Annie’s “tomorrow” was more metaphorical than meteorological, in which case we absolutely agree!
Today was a really crazy day for all of us. We had to perform in 3 different places. Performing Arts DTS students has been really great, if you want to encourage them, you could leave a comment below or message us on instagram - we’ll pass it to them! 🌙
