This is one of those “made my day” stories that crossed the brothers’ and sisters’ desks, and we agreed you would probably dig it, especially at the end.

Thanks for a good one, Douglas!

  1. This absolutely delightful story is one of the best pieces I ever read! I was so moved that I read it to my tai chi students, who adored it. Your article was a springboard for a discussion on Happiness. Wherever you are Douglas Preston, I am so happy you took the job as the Dalai Lama’s press secretary and would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for sharing your story. P.S. I am about to visit Santa Fe for the first time and will be thinking of you and your adventures as I take the ski lift and frolick around town! P.P.S. Tell us more!!!
