Ash Wednesday, and with it, the Christian season of Lent.

Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return. (Latin: Memento homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.) — Genesis 3:19

I feel strangely inspired by lent this year – it must be the pancakes I ate yesterday in Frank’s, Neal Street, Covent Garden. Three perfect, thin folded skins of egg and flour and milk, with a quarter of lemon and white crystalline sugar, a true and rare moment of nostalgia for the family home.

So, what sacrifice to make, what luxury to give up? I thought, in my so clever way, “Give up giving up.” I liked the sound of it, it reminded me of “keep on keepin on”. Then on reflection, I realised that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to work for a little over a month on being more determined. So that is what I will do.
