I Miss Good Man, but Not This Much

I miss Good Man and am counting the days until he gets off that plane.

But much as I love him, I could not live within 15 feet of him 24 hours a day.

Ten years ago, Michael Roach and Christie McNally, Buddhist teachers with a growing following in the United States and abroad, took vows never to separate, night or day.

By “never part,” they did not mean only their hearts or spirits. They meant their bodies as well. And they gave themselves a range of about 15 feet.
