Hey! Orthodox Lent is just beginning! Just in time for my new idea for a Lint project:
Mashed Potatoes and Meditation!
Yes, that’s right. From now until Orthodox Easter (known as Greek Easter to my family) on May 5, I will meditate every day and also eat mashed potatoes every day.
I have a sneaking suspicion that my insomnia might be tied to a lack of meditation and I want to test that theory. Plus, meditation is good for me and I’ve fallen away from it. As for the mashed potatoes, my favorite local actor, Andy Lee-Hillstrom (U of Idaho graduate!) ended his bio for the play The Velvet Sky with the following: Andy’s a sucker for a good montage, the sound of fingernails being clipped grosses him out, and he could eat mashed potatoes every day of his life.
When I related to Matt that I too could eat mashed potatoes every day of my life, he didn’t believe me. So I’m eating them every day of Orthodox Lent.
