The end of fast is fast approaching.

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

Not that it is at the top of my mind these days, but today it occurred to me (well all right, it has occurred to me on a few earlier occasions as well) that by this Sunday the fast will end. By Sunday I am free to crack open a can of Cherry Coke and crank up the tunes on my stupid little music phone, if I so desire. On Sunday evening as I make the two hour drive home I will be able to, for the first time since the beginning of February, drive to the sound of music and imbibe a gallon of Mountain Dew to stay awake. What will be the first album that I play, after these long days of quiet? I’m not sure yet. I’m not sure if I ever want to drink soda again. I’ve gotten rather fond of water and tea and fruit smoothies. I’m not sure if music is such an addiction any longer. I like to hear it, but I have also come to adore the quiet.  I really like having quiet time! And I think I’ve learned how important that is. Remember when I gave up blogging for Lent? Ha! This has been much healthier, I’m sure of it.
