Tibetan Culture

Nathaneal and I share an interest in calligraphy... and now, I find, Tibet and the Dalai Lama.

I wanted to draw your attention to his suggestion that we educate ourselves about the Tibetan culture. What a good suggestion and positive action.

Sadly too, his image and suggestion brought to mind the situation in Ray Bradbury's novel, Fahrenheit 451. Faced with a society that banned and burned all books, people saved them by committing them to memory...

Taking them to heart.
Seems we are being called to many lessons: non-violence, diversity, and love.

Thank you, Nathanael.
