Apparently, the most distinctive day on our calendar, from a series of “it should have never happened”: somewhat illusory, somewhat in the middle of nowhere and, at the same time, omnipresent, for we are aware of its virtual existence during the years when we are stepping into a new spring without this 29th day. It is, however, sad, to a certain extent, that humankind has not as yet made a magic use of this unique resource. Miracles are always nearby.
My congratulations on one more winter we’ve gone through, hopefully, without too many losses.
