He’s gone. For the sake of his privacy, I will remain vague. This is going to go one of two ways: 1) He leaves the studio to move to a place where he can better handle his situation, or 2) He stays at the studio for a year, but has to move when time is up for the same reason listed in #1. Either way, I have to find a way to wrap my head around the fact that Tommy is gone. As for my lessons, I’m currently being taught by one of the female instructors. This is beneficial because no one can teach you how to be a woman on the floor as well as another woman. But, I’m kind of blindsided by this. It hurts. However, I would like to think that when one adventure in life ends, another better one begins shortly after.
