"Next time, you stay longer!"

2011 03 28 photo
This afternoon we stopped by Sharath's office to say "Thank you" and "Goodbye." It felt slightly awkward because what do you say to someone you only know through your yoga practice? He did tell Joe, "Next time, you stay longer!" which made me feel good, because he just assumed there would be a next time.

Being around Sharath is almost like being around a celebrity. You know a lot about him but he doesn't know much about you. He definitely makes more of an impact on your life than you do on his. I guess that is the consequence of being a teacher.

So will there be a next time? I certainly hope so. I don't think I can make this trip every year, but maybe every 2-3 years would be manageable. Next time I would definitely want Joe to live here like I did. So now we just need to make it work!

Aw, that's awesome! I really hope you do get to go back every few years, and that he can live with you that whole time as well.

Praying for a great trip back!
