Wonderful Day 素晴らしい日

What an amazing human being. The Dalai Lama. My inspiration. My guru. Today I was so fortunate to have an official audience with His Holiness. I talked about my next children's book project for the Tibetan refugee children in exile and told him that I wanted to make a book on the environmental issue, especially focused on the Himalayan ecology. He told me to come and join him at the environmental conference in India. He also said to me that it is very, very important to educate young children about the environmental issue. I remember the melting glacier in Ladakh last year. Time is running out for the earth... and for Tibet, too.

King Kong, Come back! キングコングよ、戻ってきて〜!


I could not look at the Empire State Building last night from my window. It is lit up in red and yellow.... to celebrate the Communist China's 60th Anniversary. "What were they thinking?," many New Yorkers have been questioning. Perhaps they did it for the Chinese immigrants in New York and America..., but why celebrate the communism??? Many are extremely disturbed, I read in media today. The photo above has been taken by the SFT member. I do not know how he did it, but it looks great to see "Free Tibet" !
