Tomorrow is the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and millions of Muslims will begin their annual 30 day fast. If I understand correctly, as well as a time for prayer, it is a time to practice self discipline, charity and to reflect; good practice for all of us from time to time.

In order to gain more understanding of how fasting affects us and how my Muslim friends and colleagues feel, this year I am also going to attempt to follow the fasting rules of Ramadan.

I will hopefully gain a number of insights from this experience and will try to post frequently on this blog in order to share them with you.
