One of the great joys of February 29 is that it reminds us that life cannot be fitted into a system. Something - thank God - always bursts out. What good news is that for all that is weird and wonderful in us, our lives ans relationships! The Gregorian calendar does its best to calibrate and control us. Yet having an extra day every four years can't even fix time then. So, on 29 February, we have a great opportunity really to celebrate all that is weird and wonderful in ourselves, in others, and in the amazing diversity of our world - vive la difference. So what will you do today to make it a weird day, with all the weird people and places you know?
