I delight in the idea of the 29th of February. It feels so playful to me, just adding a day to the year like that. This quadrennial correction of time to our imperfect calendars that causes the rest of the year to “leap” forward by an additional day – it offers up so much possibility. What kinds of special things can happen on a day that only comes around every four years? The 29th invites us to honor and celebrate doing something new for ourselves, doing something different – something that we may have been thinking about but have been putting off, or perhaps something that we just discovered recently. In the same way that February 29 balances our calendars, how could this day nudge us into finding a new way to balance ourselves?
