A "Meaningful" Fast


15. Heche is not very good at fasting

The moment I open my eyes
During the fasting month,
I feel the pain.

I console myself that
This way it makes my fasting
More meaningful.

Often though, I wish that
God wouldn’t make
My fast SO meaningful!
(From current and untitled chapter)

Taufiq, Many spiritual blessings to you during this holy month of Ramadan.

I am like your crazy haired blonde above; I know that the fasting can bring inner gifts but it makes me very cranky!!

Dear Katherine,

While I hope for spiritual enlightment, but I am happy to accept physical enlightment this Ramadhan, via a few inches off my waist.

Thank you for your kind wishes. And yes, like you too fasting often makes me cranky, but even more so as I smoke like a chimney especially when working. Tsk Tsk Tsk.

May you also find success in this holy month and be the best Christian that you wish to become.

Sincerely

Nicotine-less Taufiq.
