Christmas leftovers, New Year's Eve supplies....tomorrow I will freeze what I can because I am giving up meat and most dairy (along with alcohol, as usual) for my most ambitious Lint ever. This is the third year I'm embarking upon my own abstemious spiritual practice, modeled on the Catholic season of Lent I practiced as a child and young adult. This is my third year for Lint, and I am a bit surprised to find myself looking forward to this period of self-imposed austerity right in the heart of winter. I am also a bit annoyed that I haven't come up with a better name for it yet, but I suppose the name will come when it's ready.
Happy New Year!
