This morning we’ve dispersed along this mountainside in order to say goodbye for now to our home away from home. There is always a certain heaviness that characterizes this final day in Agora.
We started our morning with a few sun salutations that faced the snow caps. As we stretched, women walked by with baskets nearly-identical to the ones we have been carrying on our backs with our host families, and we silently thanked Agora and its people for these remarkable few days.
We are all better because of this place. Maybe we know more. Certainly we question more. Mostly, though, we realize how significant and small we are in these mountains.
