For Lent this year I decided not to give up something.
After all, I'm already pursuing a vegan lifestyle and I gave up alcohol for the year I'm doing yoga. (Long story, that.)
Instead, I took something on. I'm feeding the birds each day. This is something that used to be part of John's and my routine, but I've gotten a bit lazy about it.
And this morning? A cardinal. Sitting on the ground eating the seed.
It occurs to me that discipline often brings beauty.
