March 20, 2018, Dewey, AZ-
I ended the Fast this evening, taking part in a community meal at Puerto Vallarta Mexican Restaurant, in this small town, east of Prescott Valley. Whilst I chose to wait until exactly sunset, to eat, others with different health conditions and needs started their meals earlier. Catchy tunes got me up and leading a small group of people in dancing around the room. This continued for about fifteen minutes, then a couple of children and their grandmother did a mini-Conga, to Gloria Estefan’s “The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”.
It was a lovely ending to a Fast that has provided quite a bit of clarity for my world. I know that my short-term plans are going in the right direction and that I need to not be distracted by well-meaning, but at times overbearing, folks whose agendas clash with those plans..
So, Spring has sprung, around these parts, as Fall has fallen, Down Under. My academic work has 9 1/2 week to run, this year. My Baha’i work, of one form or another, has the rest of my life to run. Special events will be fairly frequent, especially on weekends, these next several weeks. I hope many of you, my friends and family, will be along for the ride.
