NFTC: Broken Rule, Broken Mirror

Broken Rules, broken mirror. Heng Sure and I have been going by the principle: if we hold the rules and precepts we will be okay. The other day we took too long after lunch and were 1 hour late getting back to the bowing site. As we dawdled getting our trip together at a gas station, a black van came roaring by and smashed our side mirror. The retribution mirrors the offense - broken rule, broken mirror. Now, everytime I have to crane my neck out to check traffic because of no mirror, I am reminded of that mistake, realizing it could be my head next time.
