Ashes to Ashes

Looking forward to Ash Wednesday, tomorrow, the beginning of Lent in faith traditions that have the season in their liturgical calendar.

But no matter a person's faith tradition, Ash Wednesday is a reminder that eventually, we all end up ash-like — either buried in the ground or as ashes scattered on land, sea or mountain.

It's humbling. But in a good way.
