My goodest friend Jeff is in the midst of his third annual Photo-Fast blog. He, like me and Bahá’ís the world over, abstain from food and drink from sunrise until sunset, March 2nd through the 20th. It is a very interesting time for me. Some days are difficult, and others are simply hard, but I do gain a certain sense of accomplishment for each successful day. Perhaps this is due in part to the distinct lack of successful Fasting days during my high-school years (I could often be found hiding in a secluded stairwell behind the gym wolfing down a snickers or a bag of chips, or both). However, the Fast, now, is an exercise in restraint and discipline, while I attempt to remain focused and mindful of my spiritual side. It has become the time of year that I feel the most creatively charged.
