Merry Christmas





Dear Friends and Family,

Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything here on the B-Log. We’ve been busy…..
Sam has been working hard on the Buddha Boy movie. He’s been translating the interviews, writing the subtitles, figuring out various programming entities, and more…
The film is now ready to post on the internet. Watch out Steven Speilberg, Sam Chapin’s Buddha Boy will give you a run for your money.
Since my last cold shower I’ve had a couple more. However, now that I’ve been going to the Ex- pat gym with our friend Tina I’ve had couple of very very long hot showers to make up for frosty ones. Ahhhh yes!
So besides yoga, writing, shopping, recording studio work, Passage work, much eating, drinking and merriment, we’ve had a few adventures. There was going to Sam’s house in the hills. Here you can hike for hours, live like Little House on the Prairie on you’re not on the Prairie and there’s a CD player, and peer out onto the endless mountain filled sky. We’ve gone to Pashipatit (please excuse my spelling mistakes, I’ve reverted back to childhood quite a bit here and now I’m using inventive spelling on many words). Here of course were the funeral pyres and monkey craziness. We walked to the Monkey Temple… struggling on the many stone stairs to get to the top. There was the butter lamp lighting at Bodha the Tibetian stupha. How can you miss a delicately lit monument under a harvest moon? Hmmm? Plus we made another pilgrimage to a cave. I believe Guru Rinpoche live in this one for 25 years. However, I’ve been know to get my meditation caves messed up so feel free to fact check with the big guy. You can see the picture of Sam and friends on the top of a big hill covered with prayer flags munching on a picnic after our cavernous experience.
I don’t know when we’ll post our next message. Hopefully once before we go to India on the 30th. No computer, just proper traveling for a couple of months ☺ But, please check every now and then anyway just in case.
We hope ya’ll are having a fabulous holiday season. Ours is great! Off to the Bodha stupha for a little holiday peace walk, the to dinner at a fancy spot, and tomorrow a Christmas brunch at our house ☺ We love you!!

Much love,
Laura & Sam

Hi Laura, hi Sam,

every now and then I take a look at your blog and wonder where you are: at a lot of places - to say the least.

Nice to watch you travelling around the Himalaya sitting at my desk in my home office in the Lower Rhine Area.

But right now even Germany is looking quite white - we have an unusual amount of snow this year. Since this is the time when send out my famous "new years cards" (snail mail) I decided to drop you a line to say hello and wish you a very happy 2006.

On Friday afternoon Josie and I will be leaving for Lake Lucerne to see our god's child (and parents :-). It's a 5 hours trip by train. Jörg will pick us up at the station and than we have to go for another 30 minutes or so by car - depends on the snow.

The village "Mariarickenbach" is like 3000 feet high and all of the landscape is covered with about two feet of snow.

Although the place looks a little different (not so much) from the scenery of our new year's party 2005 we'll have a glass or two on you.

Cheers 2006 - as we say :-)

Uli + Josie

Hi Sam,

It sounds like you two are having a grand time in Nepal. I am envious already after looking at the photo's from Bodhanath all lit up.

I just got back from Aceh, Indonesia it sounds like christmas in Nepal was more festive than in Aceh. I organized a trip for Global Exchange Reality Tours to Aceh one year after the tsunami. They are doing their first trips to China and are looking for trip leaders, I am suggesting you and a few others. If you are interested please email ladan@globalexchange.org
www.realitytours.org

I am also applying to lead the summer dragons trip to Tibet, in which case if you are still around I hope to see you.

Can't wait to meet Laura.
