It seems fitting that my first actual blog-style post comes on this 29th day of February... a day that doesn't exist 3 out of every 4 years. It speaks to all that we so easily accept as reality. You tell me that it's the 29th of February and not the 1st of March, and I concede... who would argue with that? Why do I concede? Because someone said so, someone who was in charge, someone who KNOWS how things need to go in order to maintain the earthly balance. But if you told me it was the 4th of July, I might protest. It might raise a red flag, I might think you've gone crazy, and I'd have to stick to what I "know" for sure. But if you got half the population to agree with you, and broadcasted it all over the news - texted it, tweeted it, phoned it in, pinned it, and posted it on facebook, well then... Happy 4th of July! I know, I know... it's just a day on a calendar Sunni, you don't have to turn it into a cavernous inquisition.
Nevertheless, when an opportunity comes for me to look at what ALL ELSE I am accepting purely on the say-so of others...
I'll take it. :)
