Why Blog?

Cardinal in the rain, February 4, 2014… notice how the buds on the tree are turning red? Until I picked up the camera Tuesday afternoon, I was still in a winter frame of mind.  We were under a winter weather advisory; the rain, pouring down in great sheets, shifted back and forth from ice to rain all day long like a sleeper in the grips of the flu.  And we’re still battling the flu, actually; JM passed it on to…

When Lent Comes Early

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, but I feel like we’ve been in Lent for at least a week already.
