I received an email this morning from Phuni Meston, the owner of Karma in Newton Center, MA (one of my accounts) with the message that her husband Daja Wangchuk Meston had died on Sunday "after a long battle with depression". The news is especially poignant because his story is such an incredible one. Here's a link to an article about their history in the Wall Street Journal . Since first reading this article last year, if I ever doubt just how blessed I am and how easy my life really is, I've tried to remember the amazing stories of Phuni and Wangchuk.
For an enormous dose of intense perspective, I encourage you to read the WSJ article and Wangchuk's blog, American Tibetan Nomads.
My love and prayers to Phuni and her family
