Ramadan has started in the UAE. I’ve never fasted before, not in any serious sense, and I thought I might this year, but since I ended up coming back to Australia for the summer vacation the thought sort of got replaced. My religious views are a bit all over the place and follow no consistent line of thinking, but I would one day like to explore the ideas of fasting and silence a little more. Probably not at the same time, but maybe. One day.

If you’re interested, there’s a bit about the Moon Sighting Committee in this article. I’m quite taken with the idea of a Moon Sighting Committee and I do think that a world with a Moon Sighting Committee is a better world than a world without one.
