CLOSER by carmenmayta

As his author, you'd think he'd have the courtesy to arrive while I'm still there to "entertain" him. Boys. grrrrrrrr. No gratitude.

I know. He took my breath away. The photo was from Beau's wife, the guy who built my website and is helping promote my writing career. She has a great eye, I think.

:) Half my family are Muslims :XD: I feel obliged to cos it just doesn't seem very nice when they can't eat from dawn to dusk and I go chomping away on my food :XD: :) And I pretty much like the meaning of Ramadan where you fast for penance + to feel the hunger that our less priviledged brothers and sisters go through :)

Ahh, how I see. I didn't realize you observed Ramadan. My son does too, out of respect for one of his best freinds who is Muslim. It reminds me of Lent in the Christian faith: fasting and penance to cleanse the spirit and prepare it for a new more humble beginning. So many faiths have similar rituals, don't they?

:D Yeah it's almost the same ;) Although I have to say that fasting for lent is pretty easy compared to Ramadan... :XD: Except for the part where you have to give up something that you love. :XD: THAT one, I really count the days before I finally get to drink my beloved coffee :D

You are so right. My son says Ramadan is tough -- no food until sundown, right? I'm not sure I could do it.

No food or water till sundown :) It's not THAT bad :) I mean, it depends on WHY your doing it.

If your doing it out of love then everything feels easy... If your doing it out of obligation it's a different matter... :XD:

I guess it's the whole mindset thing...

Personally, whenever the hunger or thirst pangs come in I start thinking stuff like "hey, at least your gonna get a very nice dinner afterwards, think of those who barely get food or clean water ALL the time..." and then I don't feel so hungry anymore...

Ramadan and Lent is supposed to be a month of sacrifice. If it doesn't hurt, it sure ain't sacrifice ;)

On a different note, dyu think I should get [link] publicized? :plotting:

Isn't the case with anything? How we feel about it makes all the difference. And ditto on the meaning of sacrifice. Publicized???? I'll go look and let you know.

Maybe there's a buy-one-get-one-free sale? We could share.

Ah, but "sharing" is what Jon does for a living. Thank heavens we bought two of him, hmm?
