This muscari bloomed just in time for Ash Wednesday. I like to have little purple flowers like this around the yard to pick every few days during lent to put near my little altar/sacred space.
And so, the season changes and Lent begins. With the purple out and the blossoms everywhere and the ashes, it is all familiar and once again new. Today, I tried to have a good sabbatical day. I spent time reading and in prayer and wrote a poem about daffodils. Made a good dinner. My meditation today was from Psalm 139, "darkness is as light to you". I found such comfort in these words today and pondered their significance in a dark world.
