Today is the first Sunday in Lent.

From long and thoughtful entry on BtVS:
It's so much more challenging for the writers to come up with ways to make a relationship *work* rather than ways to make it fall apart. And it's more ... um ... inspiring? Constructive? Edifying? Yeah, edifying ... to model a functional relationship, at least occasionally, instead of going the easy route and doing Yet Another Example of Dysfunction. *yawn*

"All happy families resemble one another, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
--Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina


To which I say "bullshit". What could be more boring than a monotonous line of miserable, whiney, self-involved, dysfunctional asshats desperately clinging to their miserable, whiney, self-involved, dysfunctional asshat-ness. I'd so much rather read about/watch people striving to improve their lot in life. Yeah, sometimes failing but continuing to work hard at it.
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of all our hearts be pleasing to your sight O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer. Amen

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. Sarah-the-RC left a tulip and a card outside each person’s door. Mine is in that vaselike thing Joanna made for me some Christmases ago, under my Magritte poster.

And the weather has been beautiful today and yesterday.

I would look up, and laugh, and love, and lift.
