‘I fell at his feet, sobbing like a child’

I feel like I’m on a bit of a broken record streak here when I say Tim Miller’s got a “must read” at his blog this week. But if you care about stories / memories of Guruji, it is:

The last time I saw Guruji was in May of 2008 when he came for the grand opening of the K. Pattabhi JoisYoga Shala in Isla Morada, Florida on Memorial Day weekend. I missed the first day of class due to family commitments, then flew the red-eye to Miami so I could participate in the final two days. After the two-hour drive from Miami, I arrived with 20 minutes to spare. There were 200 students lined up mat to mat.

Yes, I’m just giving you a teeny, tiny piece to encourage you to read it all. (You know I mean it when I link twice. And you know you want to understand the quote in the headline.)
