Here's a way to be mindful about Lent without having to spend all your time looking for appropriate things to read and think about. These daily reflections are written by a variety of Episcopalians with wide-ranging experience in the church and with their own spiritual lives. They will be emailed to subscribers each morning, beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 13; there is no cost for taking advantage of this generous gift from the Episcopal Church.
In order to read the text and/or listen to the audio as part of your daily Lenten practice, you need to subscribe here (choose the "Lent 2013" link) to the series. Click on the "Lent 2013" link.
Here's an example from the Ash Wednesday reflection you would have received in your email:

Evolving Planet exhibit navigates through 4.5 billion years of life.
From the Precambrian world through the Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic
eras, the world of life is explained in pictures, videos, sounds--with
fossils, even prehistoric waste and life-size dinosaur skeletons that
bring life from long ago alive today. <for more
