jour 64::365, originally uploaded by jag@lwh.

There is something innate
to the human soul that knows that,
every so often,
one must make a journey of descent,
be smudged,
lose one's luster,
and wait
while the ashes do their work.

All ancient traditions abound
with stories
of having to sit in the ashes
before one can be transformed.
- Ron Rolheiser, OMI
