Ahh, yes. I really should proofread. Instead of “I thought it would be more worthwhile..” I should have just said, “I’ve decided to invest my time into something creative…”
Yes, worthwhile makes it seem like actual fasting is not worthwhile. Which is not true. Fasting is awesome and powerful spiritually, as is giving up things for lent. All part of good disciplines. Thanks for picking up on that!
PS. If you’re wondering why it’s day 8 of lent and i only have 2 poems, it’s because i’m publishing the poems first as status updates on Facebook, and then annotating them on Medium as time permits. I thought it’d be nice to have them all catalogued here. :)
