Happy Leap Day!

February 29, 2020

Leap Year

I wrote this in February 2016 and have not wanted to change it since.
The book I had in mind? I finished writing it. It leaped across the Atlantic in December last year, probably straight into the publisher’s waste-paper basket, though I shall not know for a few months. But I’ll still come up laughing. There are far more important things in life than getting published.

And if celestial navigation is something you wonder about, try this.

    I love the adventurous spirit of this poem Ama, it makes me want to immediately go outside and stand in the cold, sunny, windy day just now striking our part of the planet.

      Thank you dear Beau. Cold, sunny, windy and very wet on this side of the world. Just the weather for an adventure!

    Thank you AMA. It is still pinned to my cupboard door from the last leap year. I try to live by it! Love, Jane

    Thank you Jane. I quite forgot I’d posted it 4 years ago!
