Picking up the threads
Once you've been away from blogging for a few weeks it's hard to get started up again! It reminds me of what happens after you've been away from the five daily prayers for a week (for those who aren't Muslim, most Muslim women do not pray the ritual worship -- salaat -- during their periods, as there is a lot of evidence that women during the Prophet's time did not, and classical jurisprudence forbids it. That however may change, at least in certain circles...)
Anyway, after even so short a time as a week away from the routine, it is easy to forget that Asr time is quickly approaching and you need to pray Zhur before it's too late, or to collapse in bed at the end of a busy day without remembering to do your Isha.
So too, it's easy to forget that you really ought to post your opinion on all the various events that are occurring in the world, or your random ruminations on life, faith, writing, or whatever it is.
Well, I will be making the effort to pick up the threads and start posting regularly once more, just as I try to be extra conscientious about not missing prayers in the first days after my period.
