    An interesting suprise is that having refugee rations has made these first six days of Ramadan much easier than they ever have been, which is not what I expected, as I am having so much less than usual. I feel … privileged to be able to stand with everyone fasting, involuntarily and voluntarily.

    I miss fresh fruit, but it is only a mental thing, not a craving.

    And there is this love for the People of Darfur, coming from this small sharing of their experience. And this wondering why so many find violence and control more appealing than love?

    Sun~Rose, feeling the strong necessity to love more
