Belated Leaping

In belated celebration of Leap Day, here are some interesting thoughts I uncovered on leaping:

The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.

- Agnes De Mille

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the h-ll, leap.

- Cynthia Heimel

All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
- Henry Miller

I wanted to do something to celebrate Leap Day, but I struggled coming up with much of anything. Except our Girl Scout cookies were delivered - so we ate them happily. But perhaps it'd be easier to think about some of these things in a Leap Year sense, giving us this entire year to leap into growth, new things, creativity, taking chances, embracing change, accepting the unknown, moving past regret, forgiving, doing things more fully, more joyfully, more gratefully. What do you think? What would you do to "take a leap" this year?
Now's the time.

Happy Leap Year.:)
