Ash Wednesday

A day to contemplate our mortality.  I think I grapple with my own, even more so as I grow older.  But tonight, as the bowl of ashes was making its way around the circle, each of us tracing a gritty cross on our neighbor,  I  contemplated the mortality of each of us   All that I hold dear…….all of us really such fragile vessels.   From dust we have come.  To dust we shall return.  All of us.
