ASHES TO ASHES

When you pass someone today
with a smudge of ashes
on their forehead

Chances are
they're observing
a Christian holy day,
Ash Wednesday.

Happy Ash Wednesday.

Today is the first day of Lent
(always 40 days till Easter) . . .

A time of "self-denial, moderation, fasting and
forsaking of sinful activities and habits."

Good luck.

"Ashes to ashes, funk to funk
We know Major Tom's a junkie.
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low."
                                         (David Bowie)
