Ash Wednesday

Daylight means a lot. We have a nice apartment in Brooklyn but I feel claustrophobic if I stay inside too long. This morning I drank my coffee and did my morning routine, not feeling particularly bad but dragging a bit. Once I stepped out the door and saw the blue sky, my spirits lifted. Anything seems possible in the morning, particularly on a nice, blue-sky day.

I was barely off my own block when I saw the first person with the distinctive mark of Ash Wednesday on her forehead. I probably won't get my forehead done today, but I've done it before, and the non-Catholics always think you accidently smudged your own forehead.

We're in the middle of the crunch on the April issue, so I can't rap, opine, or pontificate much today, but I've got a few irons in the fire that I can expand on in short order. And tonight is black belt class, which always gives me some material.

Glad your spirits have improved. It feels like spring in the city today. I love it.
