I hadn't thought much about what to do for Lent this year. My mind was focused on how to create a vegan pancake with mochi instead of pancake batter. It actually turned out quite tasty even though it was a bit sticky.
Now that the mochi is sticking to my ribs, I turn my thoughts to what to do for Lent. I've already decided to write morning pages everyday for a year, blog about it and become vegan. That pretty much takes care of the diligence and suffering aspect of Lent.
My qualifications for Lent include something that I groan about doing but I know that it's good for me to do.
Practicing guitar daily qualifies.
I thought you liked playing guitar.
I like playing when I'm good at a song, but I loathe playing when I suck at a song and I suck at most of them. After my recent stint of guitar classes, I put down the guitar and let my fingertips grown their nerves back. I can feel my fingertips again, which means it's gonna hurt to go back to playing guitar.
As long as pain is included, practicing guitar counts for Lent.
Yeah. It's gonna hurt.
Hey reader, what are you doing for Lent? Share with the class if you're so inclined. I think I fixed the glitch with the comments area of the page so you are free to lay down a comment or two.
