goodbye sophie

tonight was my last yoga class with sophie. she is off to france for two months and in that time my life will radically change. i will miss her. she helped me find peace. she helped me connect with my breath. she was a safe place for me to drag myself to each week, often many times a week. and i will miss her.
there have been many significant women in my life, she is among them. i teared up when i thought i would not see her again. but when one door closes, another opens. there are wonderful things ahead, and i look forward to those.
i will miss her, and when she covered me for savasana, she said,
who will get my blocks and mat.
and i smiled at her. i know someone will. i would if i still could.
one thing is for sure, i will miss her.
