Since Leap Year only comes around every 4 years I thought I would give it a special shout out on the 365.
The last time leap year happened (2012) I was on a break from the 365 so Leap Year hasn't happened here yet. Since starting the 365 I have featured songs, quotes, attitude of gratitudes, and daily holidays. If any day deserves it's own life party I would say Leap Year does! Good thing that Leap Year is such a *thing*, I have found fun Leap Year/Day things that span what this 365 has covered so far!
“Today is an ephemeral ghost...
A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not "exist."
In mundane terms, it marks a "leap" in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up!
But this day holds another secret—it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability...
A day of unlocked potential.
Will you or won't you? Should you or shouldn't you?
Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability!”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
“Every leap year I like to jump. It’s a good way to get my daily exercise in every four years.”
― Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious
