#366 / It's Embarrassing

This is not the first time I have done this. It's embarrassing. 

In case you are counting, the year 2014 does not have 366 days, so how come this blog posting is designated as #366?

There is supposed to be one blog posting for every day in the calendar year, and pretty much everyone agrees that December 31st is definitely included. But if the year 2014 is supposed to have only 365 days, what happened? 

Well, as I found out when I reached the end of this year, my March 8th entry was listed as posting #68. It should have been listed as posting #67.

Thus, as the year 2014 comes to a close, I can either confess error, or pretend that New Years Eve has disappeared. I don't think I can really do that. It's my daughter's birthday. 

So, my apologies to anyone who's counting, but I guess there are worse embarrassments! Incidentally, the picture above (literally embarrassing) does NOT include a picture of my daughter!

Happy Birthday, Sonya! And Happy New Year, to one and all! Maybe next year will be a year with no mistakes. But I don't predict or promise that!

  1. In my world, the New Year began on December 22, with the Winter Solstice and the New Moon, an uncommon co-occurrence, twice celebrated.

    The Gregorian Calendar, named for Pope Gregory in 1582, serves to separate us even more from the Nature, based on a disagreement over a fictitious religious holiday (Easter).

    I much prefer to note the Earth based celebrations of the seasons, based on the circular path of our planet around the Sun, and the eternal cycles of of the Moon. These are very real influences on my daily life, a pathway along the great spiral of time.

    I've even given up on days of the week and hours of the day. Who needs 'em? Let the day start with light and end with blissful darkness. Let the months be marked by the face of the moon, and the years begin with the return of the sun.

    It's Nature's Way.

    "Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you." (Carl Sandburg)
