    Thank you Amy and Leila! I look forward to this every day. It helps me get through my Fast. I try my best to make it a special time, have a special dinner (not in front of the TV!), listen to spiritual music, contemplate a little more…. Thanks so much for brightening they days of the Fast!

    Dear Amy,
    How wonderful, I can tell you that here in Australia we have already started our Fast! It’s 12:30pm now (i.e. lunch time) so it’s time to try and focus on something else rather than food. A wonderful discipline to practice for 19 days. Ha ha.

    This is a great idea. I look forward to coming back here every day this year!
