Beginnings…the Lenten Writing Challenge – 2012

Ash Wednesday*

Beginning.  Again.  With an intention to let the words out and let spirit in.  “My” experiment/excuse to make sure that each day of the Lenten season includes time for reflection and contemplation.  I’ve been doing this for (could it really be?) 11 years now, and every year, on the edge of spring, I find that beginning is hard.

Beginning on this Ash Wednesday when things feel anything but fresh and new.  Beginning on a day, within a month when there have been too many endings.   Beginning when the conspiracies of technology offer frustrating distraction from the writing, as I toil with links and formatting far beyond my skill set.  Beginning:  to settle down into the intention.  Words on page.  Attention to this day.  Beginning.  Again.  

Writing Prompt

What are your intentions for the Lenten season?  Write a Mission Statement!  Keep it simple – 25 words or less.
