The feel­ing hit me the mo­ment we made eye con­tact in class. It was so im­me­di­ate and powerful—far deep­er and in­ex­plic­a­bly be­yond any cal­cu­la­tion of time and place. You don’t de­scribe a feel­ing like that. You al­so can’t repli­cate it or force it. You just let it flow in and around you. You go where it takes you.
