Treading Water


Busy all day long
Reading, thinking, replying
Inbox remains full

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. I can’t recall having an empty inbox…even when I left a position.

    Same here, and worst, weekend spent taking care of friends who come to visit me, no time left to even look at inbox, so 3 days worth of unanswered stuff, a back up worst than a traffic jam, during a president visit to Westwood in LA! πŸ™‚

  4. Napoleon Bonaparte was quite remiss in replying to mail from his underlings. He usually ignored them. His take was: if it was important, they will follow up with a gentle reminder. That’s when he knows the problem has not gone away – and he will reply.

    You can do it too. All you need is a guillotine πŸ™‚

  5. Alas, the same story here. And now my comment has likely generated yet another email for you. πŸ™‚

  6. What a blessed position to find one’s self in, the world of blessed connection and uplifting communication. It is so beautiful how we can share ourselves so freely and open our souls up so generously for growth and consideration. I love the world of wonder we find ourselves in. A world where the best people are often busy helping others to find their own definition of being their best. So many reaching out for a helping hand. So many giving that hand to help another up. On and on the cycle of giving and receiving goes. Such blessed harmony and balance!
