Before a spring springs…. ‘lent’

Before a spring springs…

I had an interesting experience attempting to ruminate and reflect during a twenty day period of ‘Advent’ last year.

I am not ‘religious’ in the common sense but do believe that a certain re-consideration of structures, routines and discipline to our habits and attitudes might be illuminating.
A certain method in our madness can be constructive.

Some people use a 40-day period prior to spring… called ‘lent’ to re-consider ‘stuff’.
The word ‘lent’ initially simply meant spring, as in the German language lenz and Dutch lente.

This year I hope to attempt to use a period prior to spring to, as Brian put it, “think about letting go… facing into a wilderness…”

I know not what i do but, before a spring springs… stuff happens.
