The Daily Lama

Somebody, and it might have been Patrul Rinpoche, said that there are two things you should never discuss: the faults of others, and future plans. Newspapers break both those rules on a daily basis, don't they?

Anyway, we have had some fun in here during the past few months, haven't we? All sorts of pontification and arcane explorations. Sometimes I feel like a newspaper columnist -- and whether that is gossip columnist or society columnist I just can't say.

Maybe it is the funny papers.

I'm off on another round of travel. Might be brief, might be longer. Depends if I can stand the conditions. Naturally, I will not be reporting live during travel time in remote areas. I am debating whether or not to take the sat phone -- I mean, there you are, out in the middle of nowhere, and the phone rings? That never feels right. Always feels like a 1950s space movie. People say, "Oh! In case of emergency!" Well, who are you going to call? The Air Force?

Anyway, in anticipation of all these great and wonderful adventures, I have prepared and scheduled some things that will post automatically, at 12:01 A.M. Hong Kong Time, as always. This should go without a glitch, unless I mistakenly put P.M. instead of A.M., which I sometimes do, but no worries. My collaborators will also fill in -- they have been practicing with "Hemingway Contests," and so forth.

I am telling you all this in case we auto-post something about Kansas on a Thursday, when it was actually sucked up into a tornado on Tuesday, and we really should be talking about Oz.

So are you writing all the Tibetan Astrology posts or are those being written by someone else when you're traveling?

Watch out for flying monkeys!
