day six

i wake up on the concrete bed at 4am and go for morning meditation and then yoga.  it is impossible to describe how incredible it is to start yoga in the dark and watch the sky lighten and then sun rise over the water.  it is a magical time that i have enjoyed every day.

today is the day i leave and my step is mindful but light as i head back to the dorm to finish packing.  it is already hot so i douse myself with water one last time.  leaving before the 10 days is over doesn't feel like i have failed or left something unfinished, instead it feels like i have gotten what i came here for it is the right time for me to go.  as i finish packing i look down and there is a dead mosquito on my arm.
