The Nineteen Day Fast:
Written for "Spiritual Newsletter (March 8, 2017)"
For Baha'is the nineteen-day fast occurs during ‘Alá’ (Loftiness). These are the days after Ayyám-i-Há (February 25-28 or 29) before naw-Ruz, which occurs on the vernal equinox (March 19 or 20). During these days Baha'i between the ages of 15 and 70 fast from sunup to sundown. Fasting is obligatory and intended to bring a person closer to God. Those who are ill, pregnant or nursing and performing hard labor are exempt.

What silly thing inspired one of your stories?
One of the silly things that inspired one my stories was November 9, 2009 Mother Goose and Grim comic. The characters were discussing parallel universes. That gave me an idea for a story about missing spoons.

If you are looking for Esoteric Crimes do a search for weird, stupid or dumb laws in your state or any one of the fifty states. When I did this search for Nevada I found some weird and somewhat amusing laws that are still on the books.
