Leap Day


Happy Leap Day, everyone.

How will you treat this day? Will you consider it a freebie? A day that doesn't exist? (Or one that comes around so infrequently as to not count?)

There is that tendency. But, since it is also falling during Lent . . . when believers try to make positive changes in their life, I think I'll try to use this day to reenergize myself in several ways. First, as you see here, I'm going to try and reintroduce original content creation into my digital spaces.

When I started all of this back in 2004, I was mostly putting my own content (such as it was) into these spaces. But in the last few years, when I do anything it was mostly reaction to something made by others. And that doesn't help anyone and it doesn't help me exercise my brain. I realize that I'm not going to become a professional blogger or do the sorts of things I used to fantasize about doing. But I can carve out a little space for myself that reflects me in a clearer light. So, here's to that plan.

As always I'm be ruminating about my family and obliquely thinking about work experiences, since those things take up a large part of my daily routine. But I'm going to see if I can come up with new avenues of creation that might be interesting.

Anyway, I've got to get to work.

Make today interesting, in some unexpected way. It's the only one like it you will get for four years.
