Rumor has it that today is Daw the Minstrel's birthday. So, Happy Birthday! May the day be bright and lovely but not too hot or buggy, the presents expertly chosen and beautifully wrapped, and the cake and ice cream (of course you'll have cake and ice cream!) light and flavorful. Perhaps if you go out to the woods today, you might find that the Elves will come out of hiding to say hello, just for today. . .
