Dust and Ashes

And so, gang, here we go again -- another Lent...

Well, almost.

Before it starts tomorrow with what -- at least in these parts -- never fails to be the biggest, most stunningly well-attended day of the church year, every blessing of Ash Wednesday and the 40 to follow to one and all. And to those who're here for one last info-binge on the eve of your Lenten news-fast -- a more popular practice than some might realize -- just know you'll be missed, and please keep the rest of us in your prayers.

In the meanwhile, friends, enjoy your Mardi Gras... and over the 40 Days ahead, here's to a fresh start for all of us who could use it.
