Tomorrow is my last opportunity to practice alongside Matt for a while. That's been a hard reality to deal with. He's been a friend and student during this whole move to the west coast. In fact, he's really my one guy-friend in the Bay Area, at least the only one I spend time with regularly. He's like my SFBFF. More than all that, I've been lucky enough to be part of Matt becoming a teacher. He's my first mentee who I've been able to thoroughly track, and I'm so proud of the progress he has made and the teacher he has become. But now it's time for him to return to nYc (via Paris and India) and to his lovely LP. There's no better reason to uproot than for LOVE. And so I'm happy for him, but that happiness is colored with a touch of sadness. Vairagya is, like Arjuna says to Krishna, really hard.
