I've decided to post a new entry on my blog every day of Lent this year, which begins on March 1st and runs until April 8th. I know that's only 39 days rather than 40, but numbers have always been a little fudge-able in Catholicism -- consider the loaves and fishes for example. Five loaves, seven fishes, but hey, Jesus says "Everybody eats when they come to My house." Or was that Cab Calloway?
Speaking of callow ways, this won't be an exercise in taking cheap shots at religion but a way to force myself to post every day about one of my favorite topics. Some may remember that I did this several years ago on my friend Troy's website, inspired by the example of Mrs. Collins who did a drawing every day of Lent. I've been very lax lately about posting, so at least for a month it will be a new entry each day. For those of you who don't care about or actively dislike religion, sorry. For Michele, who's been patiently waiting months to hear my take on Paris, I am really sorry. But being penitant (and hopefully being forgiven) is what Lent is all about...actually, Lent is all about gearing up to crucify the Lord, but you get the idea.
In any case, see you in a week for The 40 Days of Lent.
