Jane said it’s Leap Year. Because of yesterday. So, it’s like yesterday was a Bonus Day. I wasn’t for sure what she meant but I love treats. It sounded like a treat!
She said it has to do with the seasons and the time it takes the earth to orbit around the sun, which is about 365¼ days, give or take. That’s when I gave her one of my looks. Like this:
I asked her if we should Leap for Joy!?
She said maybe we should Take a Leap of Faith!?
Instead we decided to run around the backyard, skipping and jumping.
I’m not very good at jumping, really.
Gus is really good at it. He’s like an all-star jumper-leaper ball-catching runner dog. If dogs played basketball he’d be a super star.
And then, we decided, in celebration of Leap Year, to take a HUGE LEAP!
A leap of faith and creativity, and vulnerability and joy and everything all rolled into one. Because, after all, yesterday was a Bonus Day in the World, and so that makes it kind of magical and so maybe anything can happen if you put it into motion.
So we decided to have a party. A really big one.
An art party in the garden.
On Thursday April 28th, 2016.
And we’re going to display Jane’s art around the garden.
Working title for the party right now is Poppies and Puppies!
We hope you’ll come. There will be food and wine and flowers and everything.
And maybe even printed copies of my blog and Jane’s art and stuff.
Come leap around the garden and dance and sing and paint with us.Or just have a glass of wine and look at the pretty flowers. Either way, we’re leaping forward to it. (hee hee).
And now I’m thinking about everything we have to do to make it happen and I’ve got that same expression on my face the way I did when she told me about that stuff about the sun and the earth and everything…
