21 Inches of Snow; Fasting
March 3, 2007
So we've got nothing on Buffalo, I'll admit. But for me, 21 inches of snow in one week is rather impressive. We've been snowed in the last few days; technically we could have gotten out yesterday, as they actually plowed in the morning. But my back is unhappy enough with all the shoveling that I just couldn't face the thought of shoveling out the end of the driveway, where the plow had deposited a huge dam. So that meant working — and fasting — from home yesterday.
Last year during the Baha'i Fast I talked about its relationship to Lent, and the year before about Jonesing for Coffee during the Fast. I was hoping to write something about the Fast this year, but I have a hard time seeing that happen over the next three weeks. During the last few I've been ignoring everything but work and Harry Potter (for the most part). Reading Harry Potter to keep from completely stressing out while trying to finish projects that are due... Monday.
I'm happy to say that I did not get a caffeine headache yesterday. That despite the fact that I am prone to them. Something about fasting... the spiritual attitude, maybe the extra water, some combination.
Its nearly noon and I should open up the notebook and get back to work.
