Small Victory

Today as I was walking thru Union Square, an attractive woman caught my eye. But, this time, rather than simply being dragged around by my eyes, I felt a weariness arise. The thought that this desire would end in nothing more than agitation arose vividly before the mind’s eye and it was much easier to simply put the craving for more pleasant visual forms down.

Have I uprooted this likes a? Hardly, but it is a small victory to be built upon no less.
