Well, back from my 6th project with the Canadian Chamber Choir and trying to pick highlights as I really could go ON and ON.
Prairie skies. Calgary chinooks. Visits with family and friends. The choir. A sell-out crowd for our final performance.
And now it's back to life and normal schedules and assignments and a condo that seems to breed dust and laundry.
I can't believe it's already the middle of March and am wondering where the time has gone. It's time to get the Good Friday service straightened out and I feel like I haven't even started into Lent yet.
In case any of you are feeling a similar 'lack of Lent' I'll leave you with a section of the Ignatian examen...possibly a very appropriate activity during Lent and certainly a helpful tool any time of year.
For what am I most grateful? Least grateful?

When did I feel most alive? Most drained of life?
When did I have the greatest sense of belonging? Least sense of belonging?
When was I most free? Least free?
When was I most creative? Least creative?
When did I feel most connected? Least connected?
When did I feel most fully myself? Least myself?
When did I feel most whole? Most fragmented?
