I’m not feeling great today, but it WILL be a good day. That’s what I’m telling myself…. I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time, because I am seeing the Dalai Lama speak! I have a strong interest in Buddhism (and Tibetan Buddhism in particular)- I spent a semester abroad in 2006 studying Tibetan culture, religion, and history in Dharamsala, India, the main settlement of Tibetans in exile. And I wrote my thesis on Tibetan immigrants living in NYC. I have followed the Dalai Lama and read a lot of his teachings, and I got to see him speak a lot when I was in India….Anyhow, I’m EXCITED!!! And I’m not going to let some little inner ear problem stand in my way :).
Breakfast this morning was verrry filling!
Hot multi-grain cereal with PB, raspberries, and a cooked apple. Yum!
I drizzled the apple with Agave nectar and topped it with cinnamon while it cooked in a hot pan. It came out nice and caramelized!
Now I’m off to shower and get ready to head into the city. I can’t bring my camera, unfortunately, but I promise to relay any words of wisdom I hear today to you all.
P.S. THANK YOU all for your supportive and wonderful comments yesterday. I so appreciate all of your words. All I can tell you is to cherish your bodies for all that they do for you- today! You never know what tomorrow will bring… So live it up today :).
