So often with a feeling we want to name what it is that we are feeling while failing to understand that what is best about a feeling must remain unnamed. To corner a feeling with words sets it on edge and it shall lash out or cower.

A feeling “well named” means a feeling rendered impotent, speared by our overzealous tendency to render a name to everything even when that “thing” shall suffer terribly from a label.
