40 days and 40 nights

I’m religious person, I guess. I grew up in the church, and it’s been a part of my life since birth. As a musician, I have always been employed by one church or another since I was maybe 10 years old. So, the importance of 40 days is not lost on me.

In the Bible, the authors use “40 days” to simply express some indeterminate period that is long–40 days means “a long time.”

So, today I celebrate not having as single episode, not giving into temptation, not bingeing and purging for a long time. Day 40.
