After the ashes and into Lent

 | 

What’s ecological about Lent? Ecological, to me, is the great hope that culture is permanent and that nature will evolve and endure. 

Sometimes we call this hope permaculture -- and call ourselves perma-culturists. We imagine a whole even though everything feels partial. We imagine interconnections even though we feel apart or set apart or disconnected. Isn’t it funny that people used to call a new hairdo for a woman a “permanent”?
