“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
Krahnpix is committed to changing the stodgy old calendar as a public service to the world.
Of course everyone intuitively understands our current calendars are seriously flawed. What’s with leap years, random number of days in a month and Christmas Day regularly falling on a different day of the week. And then there’s the crazy idea to start the calendar in the middle of winter when the natural year starts in September. The calendar must have been designed by a committee.
I could just follow the crowd on this whole calendar thing but I like to think Krahnpix strives for a higher standard. It all starts with leading by example. I took off a few weeks from blogging in winter and I have decided to also take August off. That nicely makes it a 10-month year on Krahnpix. That should be long enough for any year.
I am looking forward to celebrating New Year’s in September with some exhilarating posts. I have been making some interesting photos that are crying out for creative stories. August will be a fun time to keep photographing and writing not to mention adding a few posts to the empty draft posts larder.
That will also give time to build momentum on this calendar change. Back on January 28, 2013, I challenged the world to start spelling ‘thoughtful’ with the more economically and environmentally friendly ‘thotful.’ The response has been overwhelming. There have to be at least a handful of changes. With that kind of influence, it will only be a matter of time before this 10-month calendar idea goes viral.
I can see a day coming when the new metric calendar will be the standard.
PS By my calculations, you should start sending Christmas presents my way in August.
