Lent is well underway now, and although I no longer believe in or practice any conventional Christian things, aside from occasional prayers to saints, or praying the rosary, or what-have-you, I do still enjoy the Lenten season, it is a lovely opportunity to exert some sense of self-control or self-discipline regarding the sort of person… Continue reading The Road to Hell is Paved With Good Lent-entions
I came up with this idea the other day when I was making sandwiches (my menial day-laborer position as ‘deli manager’ gives my mind plenty of opportunity to wander, lol).
