Ten Simple Pleasures

(in no particular order)

1. Watching steppe eagles swoop from near my hotel veranda over to the Dalai Lama’s hilltop residence against a background of conifers

2. The calm faces of donkeys lugging sand, bricks, rocks up a steep back alleyway

3. Catching sunrise on my face while about 30 min. into morning meditation

4. Walking a new trail

5. Thick noodles in Tibetan-style soup w/ vegs. and tofu (thugkpa); or momos (pictured here)

6. Real coffee from fresh ground beans

7. My Teva boots that continually save my feet, ankles, and knees

8. Walking the kora / mani path with Tibetans and imagining how they might experience it
