We breathe in
We breathe out
Not always

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.

  2. “…not always regardless…” is how I read it. Not always easy to breathe in and breathe out when something broadsides us like a bus. Not always easy when a friend dies. And finally not always, for we, too shall pass from this earth one day.
