My Ash


Today is Ash Wednesday.

Now that we had our big Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday blow out,

Lent means giving  up something until Easter.

Since I have no vices…I am giving up excessive worry.

I am so over worrying.

Giving it all up to the Higher Power.

Like a big third step

Turn your will (thoughts) and your life (actions) over to the care of God (Higher Power, Goddess, the Big Guy…)

In the future, I would like to give my Higher Power something nicer for Lent rather than all my bad stuff, but I guess God can transform the bad into some thing good like water into wine or sand into cocaine. HaHaHaHa

Kidding…

Giving up worry…                                    

Seems like a simple solution.

Worth a try…

Until Easter…

Patti Smith

Easter 1978

Easter Sunday, we were walking.
Easter Sunday, we were talking.
Isabel, my little one, take my hand. Time has come.

Isabella, all is glowing.
Isabella, all is knowing.
And my heart, Isabella.
And my head, Isabella.

Frederick and Vitalie, savior dwells inside of thee.
Oh, the path leads to the sun. Brother, sister, time has come.

Isabella, all is glowing.
Isabella, all is knowing.
Isabella, we are dying.
Isabella, we are rising.

I am the spring, the holy ground,
the endless seed of mystery,
the thorn, the veil, the face of grace,
the brazen image, the thief of sleep,
the ambassador of dreams, the prince of peace.
I am the sword, the wound, the stain.
Scorned transfigured child of Cain.
I rend, I end, I return.
Again I am the salt, the bitter laugh.
I am the gas in a womb of light, the evening star,
the ball of sight that leads that sheds the tears of Christ
dying and drying as I rise tonight.

Isabella, we are rising.
