I have a long-term fondness for rock music, and I normally listen to it for at least an hour every day. But I have sworn it off for Lent. I am restricting my intake to classical and sacred music for the Lenten season. Plus, I am praying the rosary in the car on the way to work every morning thanks to a CD from the Mary Foundation.

I know where you're coming from. For my birthday in Feb., I received a 60 GB video Ipod to replace my third-generation variety. Very very cool. I can now fit my entire music collection on that thing and I still have 40 GB left...

Of course, I realized I had to promptly give it up for Lent (let's just say I was spending way too much time ripping CD's when I should have been praying).

And frankly, I don't miss it... yet. I threw it in a drawer and haven't thought about it until now.

Detachment from "things" is a beautiful thing.

Beautiful! You may be pleasantly surprised by the peace these small changes bring.
