Day of Rest

Michael Xavier

Tomorrow is Leap Day, a whole extra day that only comes along once every four years. I wonder what you will do with it, kind and gentle reader? Will it be like all the other days? Will it pass like a dream? Just another Monday? Or will it stand apart, infused with a particular kind of magic?

You know what? You get to decide. I know for me, as Mary Oliver says in her poem When Death Comes, “When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, something real.” I’m going to show my heart to everyone…EVERYONE. Or at least I’m going to try.

    Hello. My Leap Year present to myself was taking a couple of hours to catch up with my favorite blogs. I loved your most recent Something Good – so uplifting. Sending love and light your way.


I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
