A subtle, worthwhile book. Read it, I encourage you.
I haven't internalized everything this book offers yet, but it's not due back to the library until the end of the month so I'm not in a rush. I have a feeling that, like In the Forest of Forgetting
, I'm going to find it whenever I'm at the library just to reread passages. Remind myself of what needs reminding.

I like the idea of using sounds/sights normally thought of as unpleasant as "bells of mindfulness" to remind ourselves to breathe. Whenever a classmate complains or swears - or I do likewise - that will serve.
