A Tibetan Monk made my day today :)

A group of them have been on campus all week making a Sand Mandala and today was the closing ceremony during which they swept the whole thing up to be put in the Rio Grande to spread peace and so on. They also gave some of the sand away to the people watching after the ceremony ended. Thing is, everybody got all crazy and grabby-hands over it! So I was just standing there in the crowd waiting my turn and trying to not be a big grabby-handed jerk. One of the monks saw me and started handing one in my direction but some other lady just like GRABBED it. And I got all dejected and sad. So he reaches over and grabs another one and hands it to me and smiles all big at me, like the personification of :D.

It was so cool, that monk RULES. :D

It was like a big beaming smile, not like a sort of half assed awkward one like we usually give people we don't know. My sister says that they all had really "genuine" smiles. And I think that's true!

The world needs more monks.
