By Leaps and Sounds 2017

February 29, 2016

A leap day is added in various solar calendars (calendars based on the Earth’s revolution around the Sun), including the Gregorian calendar standard in most of the world. A leap day is observed because the Earth’s period of orbital revolution around the Sun takes approximately 6 hours longer than 365 whole days. A leap day compensates for this lag, realigning the calendar with the Earth’s position in the Solar System; otherwise, seasons would occur later than intended in the calendar year.

When we are gifted that extra day, there is a certain enthusiasm in the air. When you always feel like you are running behind, what happens when you wind up ahead for a little bit? What would you do to take advantage of the this gift a time?  In celebration of Leap Day, Cream Co. presents “By Leaps and Sounds”, a pre-leap day audible exchange. We will be recording responses to the question: what would you do with an extra day and what seed might your intention look like? Each intention will become a seed that will be sown into future Intention gardens. By sewing seeds of best intentions, we can celebrate our extra moment of glee in perpetuity.
