In hopes of distracting myself from my increasing pre-flight anxiety (although it may be too late for such measures), I have been trying to keep up with the situation in Tibet. If you are interested, you might want to take a look at this blog, which has some fairly up-to-date information about what is happening there. The blog is written by a man who is a Unitarian Universalist and Zen priest and he often has information and general thoughts that I very much enjoy reading. Once you read - and sign the petition for whatever it's worth - about the terrible things happening in Tibet, scroll down a little and check out his six-word biography. I may have to steal it!
