Thoughts are swirling around in my head — actions and prayer around water, air, soil, children, women. But how to narrow all the possibilities into one meaningful prayer and one meaningful practice that will carry me through the days of Lent? This will take more quiet, more prayer, some conversation with a soul mate.
