A lot of you mentioned wanting to read up more on Pakistan in order to understand why things are the way they are now. You might want to take a look at this post, on language in Pakistan. It might be difficult to comprehend just how *important* language is in this part of the world, but that is how it goes. East Pakistan became Bangladesh *because* of language.
I've yet to be sold on the idea that language death is an inherently bad thing, but it was useful to learn about the different dynamics in Pakistan's history.




joy sadhana for Christmastide (5)

"Joy Sadhana is a daily practice in the observation of joy." -mylittleredgirl [more info]

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light.  And they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
-Isaiah 9:2


Five good things about today:
1. Sleep.
2. Fic.
3. Fresh air.
4. Food.
5. Ari.  (There was commentage, ergo, totally counts.)

Three things I did well today:
1. I went for a long (hour plus) walk ('cause I had not exited the house in like 48 hours).
2. I read and feedbacked more fic, both Yuletide and non.  And worked on my recs page update.
3. I made myself actual food for three meals (okay, maybe more like two and a half) and didn't eat myself sick on chocolate (much).

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
1. Going to church.
2. Doing laundry.
