The ashes of Ash Wednesdays past
It is Ash Wednesday and that means I have to leave the house, alas. I have been immersed in things Pennario, wrapping up this immense discography and checking in with various kind souls around the world who are assisting me. Ha, ha! At one point I spoke out loud to Leonard. I said, "If I had known you had made this many records I never would have signed on for this."
There was no answer. I mimicked him to him.
"It'll be fun. We can talk about movie stars. I knew all these movie stars."
"You actually told me that," I reminded him.
Back to work.
In such a fashion the hours fly.You blink and look up a Carnegie Hall review or something, you pour a cup of Bengal Spice, and all of a sudden it is getting dark.
And all of a sudden it is Lent. You are reminded that you are dust and unto dust you shall return. As if I need reminding, you know?
I took five minutes to ponder Ash Wednesdays past.
