When you get a last minute phone call, asking you to shoot a Buddhist Monk on the shores of Lake Tahoe at 7am before he catches his flight to head home, the answer is always, a resounding, yes.
We only had about a hour and the weather was pretty dang unpredictable, but good grief what a beautiful hour that was.
Being in the presence of Bhante stimulates a special kinda magic. The energy and peace his tiny little being possesses is palpable and raw. My only complaint was not having more time to just sit, listen and absorb all that I could. Instead, we hopped around Crystal Bay and the Meadows, mostly in silence, both in awe of the beauty that spring morning provided. It truly was a privilege to have been asked to lend my craft to this special man and his cause. I encourage everyone to take a peek into the work he does and the loving kindness he is seeking to spread.
May you be well, happy and peaceful.
