Fasting for Tueday

It’s Tuesday again and I am again taking up the practice of a modified fast as I have for the last two or three Tuesdays in a row. Why Tuesday? No reason comes to mind although it does seem like a good day to recenter myself which is generally what fasting for me does. Whether it’s a complete fast like Ramadhan, uposatha fasting or a liquid fast like that which I have been observing for these last few Tuesdays all fasts call attention to how and when we consume. For me, the practice of renunciation acts as an invigorating tonic on its own but the fact that one must be constantly mindful to avoid accidentally breaking the fast makes it all the more potent.
