just a few steps back
at least twice this week I’ve felt a semi-out-of-body-experience while following other teachers around. I’d ask how to do something, and we’d start walking somewhere and I’d just completely zone out. It felt like I was just slightly behind myself, watching the scene play out. They would be talking to me but all I could think is how strange they seemed. For a brief moment I would forget where I was, what I was doing, even who I was. Everything was familiar but foreign, like seeing an image of the Eiffel Tower or the Great Pyramids – I know what it is but it isn’t a part of my story. It’s easy to feel like you’re drifting along in life, but it’s a shock to feel like you’re separated from yourself.
