Ash Wednesday

"...
And pray that I may forget
These matters that with myself I too much discuss
Too much explain
Because I do not hope to turn again
Let these words answer
For what is done, not to be done again
May the judgement not be too heavy upon us"

I can never forget T.S. Eliot at the beginning of this time of discipline and observance.

It will be hard this year to live up to my commitment. I have started. Just a little bit, a little tiny start of a story, a something, a small, curled up thing. But a thing, something of mine.
