Something about Ash Wednesday

For more than half my years I have had ashes placed on my forehead on Ash Wednesday as a reminder of my mortality. As they are being imposed there is a sensation of very fine smoothness and the pressure of the persons finger making the sign of the cross. But there is also a roughness to the ashes. A grittiness and that is what is on my mind. It seems that long after the ashes have been rubbed or washed away that grittiness stays.
