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.
