Jumping and leaping in the desert may not be for everyone – there are countless numbers of bare practitioners who are truly addicted to the beaches! However, the global phenomenon known as Leap Year only happens once every four years, so I imagine it is one occasional occurance that the overwhelming majority of us can live with! To everyone, Happy Leap Year and happy leap year day!
February 29 is the extra day inserted into the calendar in order to keep our daylight and nightfall in balance with the seasonal transition. That’s probably not a truly scientific explanation for what the extra day determines but it is as close as I can get as far as a simple definition for the date without referencing the internet.
I sincerely apologize for my laziness in this matter. I guess I can blame it all on leap year day! Now I can stay blameless until the arrival of another one in four more years!
In all fairness, we can also enjoy leaping for leap year day while at the beach or near any other body of water, man-made (pool) or natural (lake). However, I strongly discourage any attempt to try to take a leap in a bathtub. The potential for personal injury is just too great for it even to be considered!
I should perhaps have mentioned a few words of caution when leaping anywhere around rocks! The risk of mishap there is likely to be extremely painful as well as around a bathtub. Of course, anyone with exceptional gymnastic ability significantly enjoys less risk than others!
Irregardless, enjoy your Leap Year Day! The joyful reality for this day is that we all have four years worth of recuperation before we can engage in the celebration again! I am very grateful that the images denoting leaping formations here for February 29, 2020, are at least consistent with the theme of yesterday’s post: Bottoms-Up! End of February, 2020!
