Today is Ash Wednesday, the 1st day of Lent (40 days 'till Easter). It's a good time for reflection and making positive changes. Your's truly am going to cut down on processed sugar and vegetable oils; and get more productive by having less-distracting music in the background, like the Mediterranean folk varieties, or none at all (while I'm working).
Lent commemorates the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, en route to Jerusalem to celebrate and stir things up during Passover, according to the Gospels. It's a time of fasting, moderation and for making positive changes, like giving up smoking or a food (like candy) or a bad habit (like laziness or watching too much commercial TV). Some folks make a resolution, like being more positive, working out more, or volunteering to serve the less fortunate.
Hope you have a great Lenten season!
