I’m so excited. Next week, I’m going to Australia for the first time — that’s exciting. But even more exciting, I get to meet the Dalai Lama. Not just be in a room with him, but actually meet him. Briefly. It’s exciting, but it’s also a little unsettling. What should I say to the Dalai Lama? Should I try to ask a meaningful question, should I absorb his presence in silence, should I make polite chit-chat? I’d really like to ask the question, “What’s it like to be the Dalai Lama?” But that’s probably unanswerable, and also a little impertinent. Any suggestions welcome! Live in Australia? My schedule is here. I’m really looking forward to this visit.
