Ash Wednesday, Late

Our service was beautiful. Somber. Almost ethereal.

But not, of course. Not ethereal. Our pastor burned a palm branch he had picked up on the Temple Mount two weeks ago.

And then I found that I could not receive ashes. I simply could not do it.

Because I have ashes. Upstairs in my house.
