Lent in The Anthropocene i
It takes the Anthropocene to know what it all means when says old Mr. P “neither lender nor borrower be”; for whatever you presume to own is yours no more than on loan from tomorrow all is borrowed. Yes, even the splash of your baptism was drawn from the river of the future and these forty days are to ensure that the waters off your head return to the source not oily but pure. So give up the proprietor’s stance. Boldly take the chance to restore the Jordan— poor trickle of tomorrow— from its ancient coming sorrow. The desert lives; it wants all its dryness back and the interest you are to pay is very close attention.
