I didn't see another person with ashes yesterday. I did have someone ask me for an explanation of the ashes. I said Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the period of preparing for Easter. She said "I'm of a different faith." As she looked Anglo and was working in K Mart in Brevard NC, I suspected she was an evangelical christian who saw Catholics as a different faith. So I said I wasn't Catholic, I was an Episcopalian, and told her that some Protestant churches follow the same calendar.
