His Holiness

Karl and I had lunch with His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama yesterday.... along with about a thousand other people, but still, not a typical lunch date for us. He was in town to accept the Freedom Center's International Freedom Conductor Award and stayed afterward to be interviewed by Gwen Ifill. He also took a few questions from the audience. The thing that struck me the most about his Holiness was that he totally cracked himself up... he snickered and giggled throughout a good part of the interview- a man of peace, with a good sense of humor.

The heart of his message... be kind and remain hopeful and enthusiastic for the future.

I also enjoyed that he wore a golf visor (maroon to match his robes, of course) so that he could see his audience through the glare of the stage lights. Practical fashion at it's best.
