Ramadan Kareem 1433 / 2012!

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 21, 2012, 10:51 AM
Happy Ramadan to all my Muslim fans and non-Muslims alike!

Please look here for more info I wrote up on it before hand. Interesting posts are there too, though I don't condone all of the answers to questions as correct that relate to Islam by myself or others. I'm not a scholar but I just want to share the info with you and as always you are free to read it or not read it as you wish, enjoy!:

Ramadan Kareem 1432 / 2011!So what's Ramadan?
A quick explanation for those who have never heard of it, this is the month in which all the eligible Muslims are encouraged to fast from food drink and any type of sexual activity from sun up till sun down for 29 or 30 days of the lunar calendar. Eligible means men and women who are over the age of about 7, are not sick, or traveling, or in women's instance have their menstrual cycle, pregnant, or in some cases breast feeding.
We do so primarily to gain an awareness of Allah, but among the other benefits is that we can understand the hardships of poor people, we shed extra weight, and clean out the system of pollutants. Its also a time of solidarity and sharing food when we do break fast. We visit each other more often and go to the mosque to pray for many hours in which the whole community is there. For us it is a very happy time focused on community.
Of course it is difficult at first, but the blessings are huge and many great things always seem to happen each yea

I probably will be more quiet on blogtv than the norm, if I broadcast at all as I've noticed many aspects about myself that are not good. They seem to come out more when i Blogtv it. I'm going to take this month for a more introspective look at how I can go about improving myself as a person.

I still owe one or two commissions which I will of course do, however maybe not live. Many big things happened in SDCC this year in relation to future work and I have a lot to think about in relation to what comes next and what I will choose. Also, many aspects of my life outside of work are in large upheaval and  I just find constant blogging to be distracting me from giving it serious thought. PAX prime may or may not happen, but for now Fan Expo in Toronto seems likely for me if only for a day or two. NYCC in October is another one as well I have to prepare for. I might have to find an office closer to home to work in, pick carefully from the  jobs ahead of me, and plan for other things next year, man so many things colliding at once.

To all the people who came out this year to SDCC I appreciate your patronage as always! I still will check back here and other places online of course, and soon I hope to have my website up and running but September!

Take care guys!

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
