On an Ash Wednesday, these are the things that are in my thoughts:
– the beginning of Lent, of sacrifices and reminders of our mortality
– a friend who has died young because of Hodgkin’s lymphoma
– my own mortality, the fragility of my human body
– a spiritual world that is stronger than the corporal one
– the importance of human relationships, and how they can be broken by so many things: misunderstandings, selfishness, circumstances, sickness, death, etc.
