Beware Not

July 1, 2016: Pleasure

The sage says that pleasure shines like a gild. The holy forbid pleasure, for its achievement is sacrilege. The author begins her story of torment and despair with a wistful flight into the selfishness of pleasure. Hardly does such a beautiful experience as pleasure evoke such danger. Beware not of pleasure, but of your understanding of it.
