Ash Wednesday is the day after tomorrow. I like Lent — I like the undistracted reflectiveness. Even the name of Lent to me, with my limited latin coming from a music background — sounds like lente… slow. Slow is appealing to me as I am now. The Adagio of Days is coming.
Of course, we won’t talk about how long it takes me to remember that Ash Wednesday is always preceded by Marti Gras. D’oh!
