So a couple years ago, my best friend/martial arts teacher/dojo owner got a job offer through the company we both work for, out in California. He is from Cali originally, and so it was a great fit.
It was really sad for me, because I feel like I lost everything basically in one day.
Anyway, fastforward, I have days like today, where I really miss him, and his wife. He was sort of my grounding influence. I am sad today, because I miss him like crazy.
