In ordinary time, I post a "Friday fountain break" photo on Friday afternoons. I gave it up for Lent, planning to post a proper reflection on Fridays. Alas, Friday is almost over and I find myself having not had time to settle into reflective mode while being anywhere near a computer today.
But since I gave up the Friday fountain break for Lent, I am instead posting a glamour shot of a rooster and a plate. I have noticed that many of my friends all over the world, including clergy, keep chickens. I don't know why, and I don't intend to keep any chickens at the moment, but I do have this wooden rooster.
Am I, by posting only a photo instead of a reflection with a photo, adhering to the letter but not the spirit of the Lenten law of giving things up? Yes. I am truly sorry, but there it is.
