Lent Devotion Day 1 (Feb 22): ASH (from Isaiah 58: 1-12).


QUOTE: Cormac McCarthy: All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one’s heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.

POEM: Tahar Ben Jelloun. The Rising of the Ashes [Before] – excerpt: I pace the abyss. I descend. I am suspended. The ashes still smolder. They rise, surround me, then fall again, grey dust that makes my body a sand-filled hourglass.
