Dear Yoga Teacher,

Thank you for not laughing when three of us fell. Thank you for not adjusting me too strenuously, as life has already done that this week.

Thank you for saying, “Every act of violence or war begins in a tense body.”

You may have kept me from committing murder.

Very sincerely,

Your student Image
