I was watching the sun come up yesterday morning, reflecting on the many days I have done the same thing.
Different couches or chairs. Different states. Different countries around the world.
One of my most memorable was New Year's Day in a mountain top hotel on my way to Darjeeling, Northeastern India. The view from my window was breathtaking, looking down to the valley far, far below. I wish I had a picture - and I do have one, in my mind.
But as I sat there yesterday I thought: I wonder how many days I have been alive on this earth?
And how would I calculate that with Leap Years?
And why was that important? I don't really know. It just seemed that it would be interesting to know the number.
So I found an online calculator that told me exactly what I wanted to know: 26, 214 is the number of days I have been on this earth.
I am going to ponder this. Just ponder.
