Maybe I think this is normal, and it turns out that it’s actually weird, but here: I’m going to suppose that everyone has a favorite practitioner at their place of practice. It is not necessarily the most advanced or the most proportioned and gorgeous looking. It probably is someone who you think you could realistically aspire to be like. In my case it is a woman who looks a little younger than I am. She was already practicing when I began a few years ago. She has a really beautiful simple practice with no fancy flourishes and she knows when she has had enough, closes and rests. Sometimes it is after a few Suryas, other times it all of it or she splits to 2nd, but she is totally at ease with herself. I am always glad when she walks into the room. This is starting to sound kind of junior high school lame but it gets worse. Today she sat next to me before class started and we talked a little bit, and she is very cool. I really think people can transmit both positive or negative energy, and this person has a very positive presence vibe. So we’re FB friends.
