OOPS!

A flash of anger.
A lifetime of regret.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

    • There’s that old practice of counting to combat anger. In Dickens’ “Liitle Dorrit” for example, Mr Meagles tells her to “count to five-and-twenty” whenever she loses her temper. I remember I was as a young child advised to learn to “count to ten”. As an adult I see it as a part of the importance of mindfulness.
