someone who was also at the last undoing racism training showed up at the nursing home where i work and i walked right past her with a dinner tray for her roommate.
hey girl! she said when i was on my way out. you look good!
i was so shocked i had to duck out of the room real quick and check the name beside the door to make sure i was actually looking at who i thought i was looking at.
you know her? my coworkers asked me after i told her i’d text you.
yeah i know her, i said.
how do you know her? they asked.
we have the same yoga teacher, i said.
it’s true: she was the first and until recently the only person i ever did partner yoga with, so long ago in your class.
