You talk of the sun setting
What nonsense!
The sun hasn’t disappeared
It is you who have rolled away

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.

  1. This made me laugh since it reminded me of someone I once knew and fortunately rolled away. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. This is fantastic! Great aphorism here.


  3. There are several of these types in my life and them rolling away sounds divine. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  4. Someone willingly fell into a shadow – how appropriate considering the title!


    • We talk every day of the sun “setting”. Even though we accept intellectually that the planet revolves, in a “gut” level we remain at the pre-Corpernican stage.This analogy can be applied to a number of our attitudes that are still woefully anthropocentric. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
