into Lent

Lent has begun. This year there will be for me I think a particularly interesting, and probably demanding, link to the material that I am reading from the Desert Fathers and Mothers. Here's a typically testing saying which I am musing on at the moment, from [the perhaps aptly named] Alonius: 'If I had not destroyed myself completely, I should not have been able to rebuild and shape myself again'. The pic is of a drain cover I saw last weekend.
