As I sat with Fukinari-sensei, as I've sat with so many teachers in so many different lessons, I had such a feeling of happiness to be there and to be learning.  I realized with her today, that even in the midst of confusion, I'm in a very safe place.  That she is taking care of me and that I can rely on her, trust her, if I'm willing.  Maybe that's what a lesson should be.  A safe place in which to open confusion and novelty.  A safe place in which to grow, in which to confront things that are unknown and unfamiliar.

I want to carry this safe space with me in all the times that I'm alone without a guide and need reassurance.  I want to be able to share it.  An endless supply of stickers.
