The Fast ended at sunset yesterday with the celebration Naw Ruz, the Baha'i New Year. Naw Ruz is a celebration of renewal, of new beginnings. In the world outside we will soon begin to see signs of spring--new shoots pushing up through the cold soil, buds bursting into bloom on the trees. On a personal level, the pensive period of the Fast leaves me feeling refreshed and uplifted and ready for new challenges and experiences to come my way.
Happy Naw Ruz everyone!
