So a few posts ago, I put up my interlude chapter “Ash Wednesday.”  I just re-found a little
post of how, during last Ash Wednesday, not long after the idea for this chapter
came into my head, I found a Catholic church here in Springfield, and on a
whim, went back to mass (after a very long absence) for a little “research.”  It was strange going back.  I remembered the motions…even if it had been
so long (being stuck in the spiritual transition and religious weariness I seem
to occupy).  But I survived, even found a
couple of lingering pockets of nostalgia, and got a chapter out of it.


OK…weekend updates coming soon…and a call to arms for
Halloween revelry (we have two weekends left!).


Stay tuned…
