Today was a strange day, full of stress, some inexplicable nervousness despite the fact that I’ve managed to do most of what I planned. I then enjoyed, as usual, my Spanish class but afterwards a sadness caught up with me.

I think this wave of sadness has something to do with the Spanish course coming to an end next week. The truth is that I like the group and our teacher. There is something deep down in her eyes I’m going to miss and I know it already. I just remind myself that parting ways with people is a big part of life and nothing can be done about that. It’s just good we could walk together this part of our paths.

I managed to sit in the morning despite starting the day with work. I hope to do better tomorrow, however the sole fact that I manage to sit almost every day is a source of profound satisfaction for me. Tomorrow I will also go sit in the zendo.
