Door 8 - DAY OF PENANCE Task 1-3

Task 1:  “Confess” your book habits.  Dog-earring?  Laying books face down?  Bending back the spines? Skimming?  OR: Confess your guilty reading pleasure, or comfort reads.

 

It is a strange book reading habit. Reading book under the cover with a torch. More fun that way.

Task 2:  It’s “Pennants” day according to MbD’s husband:  post a picture of your favorite team’s logo / mascot and the last time they’ve won a championship (or not).

Task 3: In centuries gone by, penance would often end up in what might be described as a very extended bad hair day (complete with sackcloth and ashes). Tell us: What’s a bad hair day to you – and what (if anything) do you do about it?

 

Extend bad hair day for some time. It is just life and I would try to not let things get to me. Additional frustration is when working with difficult persons who has very little awareness of their mean behaviors.  Reading or viewing something humorous online . It is a temporary relief. It is that or ice-cream or both, depending on how bad the day was. 

 

Task 4: Early Christian spiritualists would sometimes do penance by spending time in the desert. If you’ve ever visited a desert region (or even live there), post a picture and tell us about it. Alternatively, post a picture of sand dunes (NOT with water in the background!).

 

Later. 

 

Book:  Read any book concerning a man / woman of the cloth, a book about a character hiding a guilty secret or searching for absolution.
