Happy Leap Day everyone! The only holiday we get to celebrate only four years. And happy 10th birthday to anyone out there who is NOT 40 today.
I thought long and hard about how I may commemorate this year’s leap day. I thought about making a ‘leap list’ (the new Bucket List thanks to some sticky Honda marketing) but that’s pretty much what my resolutions are all about. I thought about cliff diving or something but…I had to work today.
I did take a little leap, or rather a roll, this weekend by rolling down a hill in this thing:
No joke. It’s called the “Texas Sphere Ride.” You crawl inside that ball, get strapped to the side, and they let you go! Down a hill. Sounds simple enough, but scared the you know what out of me and was the best adrenaline rush I’ve ever had at the same time. Let’s just say it’s a good thing we did this BEFORE lunch.
I also celebrated by Mom’s biggest leap by fulfilling Resolution #52 and leaving her book for someone else to read in a coffee shop in Gruene, TX. I watched my mom spend years and years writing her book “Reunion on the Rainbow Bridge” and it took her more courage than I can imagine to publish it and put herself in the public eye with a very personal account of her parents’ unbelievable love story and a number of very personal and sometimes controversial stories of past lives and reincarnation. I encourage everyone to check it out if any of that sounds awesome to you. Because it is. 🙂 You can get it at bookstores everywhere (usually in the New Age section) or here on Amazon.com. Unless of course you live in Gruene. Then you can pick up a free copy at this coffee shop!
Still nothing for the day-of Leap Day, though. So, I had to settle for stretching my artistic muscles and creating this out of one of my favorite “Leap” quotes. For your Leap Day Pleasure. Enjoy!
