Recognizing the impermanence of riches, I breathe out
goes rather oddly with checking my online trading account and rejoicing at having made $1500 in a single day. (On paper, while on paper I lost $350 on my other stock.) However, messing about with penny stocks does distract the mind from the approaching operation. When that's over I'll be back to working at mindfulness and detachment again, trusting that they and not penny stocks will get me through whatever the next crisis is.
