Fasting Day Twenty-Six: A feast during the fast

Mmmmm, salmon!

Today’s big event is a bbq for Nurse Shasta and her nephew Jacob who has come to visit her. I’m basically in charge of dinner, and we’ve bought fresh rogue river copper salmon and it’s red and gorgeous, and fresh snap peas from the farmer’s market and we’re making risotto and then for dessert it will be Oregon strawberries and fresh cooked short bread cookies. It’s going to be an amazing meal, and I’m really excited for it, even though I don’t get to eat it! I’m looking forward to everyone else enjoying it.

Today at the grocery, I felt really terrible for a minute… I wasn't sure I was going to make it out of the store. I had to lean up against cart and use it to stand. I felt really weak and awful, but it passed in a few moments....


  1. Hey Matt. The posts are great. It's really an interesting journey. But I was thinking today about how you said you were going to post on this for the 40 days of the fast, and I started to wonder a bit about the days right after the fast. Trying to get back to eating and transitioning back into sharing meals, all that kind of stuff. I don't know about others, but I'd be very interested in all of that as well. If you're interested in talking about it. Just an idea. Peace.

  2. Sure I can write a bit about that... I didn't take detailed notes though.
