Girl who dances in a cage

brief update

I haven't had time to read LJ much, or post. The other night we watched a documentary about asking the Dalai Lama 10 questions, or something like that. The part of the movie with the history of Tibet and Buddhism was the most fascinating. We fell asleep watching it so it has kind of faded from my memory already. But the part that struck me was the observation that poor people in India are actually happier than the rich. The Dalai Lama said this is because when you have less, you have less to worry about.

Assuming those poor they refer to at least have a roof over their head and know where their next meal is coming from, I think this must be true, in any country.
