Is anyone feeling spiritual today?

I don't. I am just hungry. And guilty-feeling for not feeling spiritually afflicted.

I just feel no connection to this fast. Why are we fasting (I don't mean it literally)? Yom Kippur is big. Very spiritual. Tisha B'Av - ditto. Gedalia - could care less.

Curious about everyone else. Am I in the minority?

I find Ta'anit Esther even more difficult than Gedalia. Gedalia, at least, I can get the right general mood of "look, I'm sad", plus you still have the whole Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur righteous kick to keep you afloat. But Ta'anit Esther, I don't even know how I supposed to make myself feel- sad? holy? worried? prayerful? happy?

it is sort of confusing. unless you look at it from the whole "Yom Ki-Purim" perspective and focus on Purim as another day of judgememnt, only fast before not during. eh.
