Episode 41- June 16, 2015

The sixth New Moon is the Strawberry Moon, and love is in the air.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth explores Summer's symbolic berry in an Algonquin legend about the original Man and Wife.  She also shares a true story about a wedding nearly derailed, and reads a fictional tale involving an important wedding gift, called "Tootsie".  

"Sometimes Tootsie had a hard time reconciling that her parents had once been married, given who they were now.  Her father, Thomas Putnam, Mayor of Everything.  He knows people vote the way their cats think, so he leaves Friskies in a bowl by the horse chestnut year round.  Her mother, Hilary Fox, Landsculptor.  She knows Freewill doesn’t exist, so she gardens...."

"The date was next week, but Nadine was ready, or nearly, or could be.  She would wear her black jeans.  Snug, but not inappropriate, with the purple, satin embellishments on the back pockets.  They traced out a hint of butterfly wings without being actually insects..."
