You have taught me well, my friend,
less by words and more by demonstration.
Yesterday I came home and felt proud,
because what I had learned from you was seen and appreciated.
You weren’t there, but your efforts were.
We’ll play again.
Yesterday I came home and felt twofold proud.
At university someone had asked me for academic advise and an open ear, someone more advanced than me.
At capoeira class I was introduced to someone as an advanced student, and for one exercise the others were told to follow my rhythm, as my timing was found to be good.
