Lenten Reflection: Anywhere Else

Here’s a thoughtful Lenten reflection from Cheryl Lawrie’s [hold this space] website.

Reflection for Lent

i just realized
that in my imagination
the wilderness is always somewhere else;
a foreign landscape i actively have to enter
in the act of being faithful.

the wilderness is always where i am
right now
and faith is the courage to stay with it
when i’d rather pretend i am
anywhere else.
