Today is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent (after yesterday’s pancake blowout and a couple of practise runs on Sunday and Monday!). Among other things, that means it is time for any Lenten disciplines to kick off.
This year I am planning to pick up the idea I have run with several times in the past (see Lent) and give up late nights. Lights out by 10:30pm with one exception allowed each week (rather than putting that on Sunday, I use it to accommodate gigs and other events that jut out later). That means starting tonight; hopefully this evening’s seasonal service at St Clement’s, for which I’m playing bass, won’t run on too long and use up my first exception.
