Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.
Today’s song of the week, Simon and Garfunkel’s Scarborough Fair / Canticle is a reference to my favorite time of year – Renn Faire season. I love Renaissance Faires and go to as many as logistics and finances allow every year. This year, Rob and I are heading up to King Richard’s Faire with my cousin / best friend, Nikki, and my god-daughter, Katrina. Then later in the month, I hope to head down to the Maryland Renaissance Festival (which is quite possibly my favorite place in the world).
Apart from it’s Renn Faire association, Scarborough Fair has always been one of my favorite songs. I grew up on Simon and Garfunkel and love to listen and sing along with their music.
