Ash Wednesday and the Counting of the Money

After Ash Wednesday, we stayed to help count the money--that's my spouse in the purple shirt.

Not only did we have ash crosses on our heads, but we were dressed in the appropriate colors:  purple and black.  But I couldn't get far enough back to really capture us all.

Still, I thought a photo of humans with ash crosses on their foreheads, counting money, said something about our human condition, about our ashy condition.  We know that we will return to dust, but we don't know exactly when.  So we must do our earthly tasks, the counting of the money and the paying of the bills.
