« The Tao of 9 Second Avenue | Main | More on Yauch »

I work with a group of Tibetans currently. One of them commented to me recently that he thought the most beautiful pairing was what he called "American" (he means, essentially, a white person) and Tibetan. I'll be sharing the photo of Adam and his daughter with him today.

I have a follow up to my comment. I had the photo of Adam and Tenzin up on my screen at work, and one of my Tibetan coworkers (also named Tenzin)came over to my desk.
"That's Adam," he said, pointing to the screen. "I met him a while ago. His daughter's wearing traditional Tibetan dress in that picture."

He paused and looked at me. "He came to some Tibetan thing we were having a while ago. Very nice, very humble. Didn't say anything about what he did for a living... someone came up to me and said 'That's Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys.' He was a very sweet man. We'll miss him."

... the world is a tiny, tiny place.


I felt the same way Alex. It shook me up for the exact reasons you mention.
