These Three Days and other stories

It's my most favoritest time of the year.

The Easter Triduum—Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil—is a bit exhausting (especially for anyone involved in the liturgies) and entails three very long church services three nights running. And it is so stunningly, beautifully worth it.

Lou has today off work, so this post will be short. But it's sunny, there's lettuce coming up in the garden, I've got my rewrite of the first three chapters of my novel drafted and out to a few trusty readers who will tell me if it's dreadful, and despite my having been a little under the weather, it's been a good week.

Writers' link of the week: Over at The Big Thrill, Lee Child and "The Long Game": Lessons on Success From One of America's Favorite Authors. Good stuff.

Music of the week: From Holy Thursday, the Pange Lingua. This is one of my favorite chant pieces.

Random amusement of the week: Mr. Pond sent this link recently, and I have no idea what (theoretically) English subtitles are doing on The Lord of the Rings films, but they are pretty dang hilarious. Advisory: some language (no one knows what language, but some of the bad words are in English).

Have a blessed Good Friday, a happy Easter, and a great weekend!
