Today is the last day I went to Chulalongkorn University as a full-time lecturer. It’s the 14 years of happy memories, accomplishments, stresses, tears, and friendships. The office that was decorated with thangkas and served as a little Tibet enclave is now an empty room reminding us of change that occurs as a common fact. From tomorrow I will begin my life anew on the path less trodden. But on this path it’s a comfort to know that I’m not traveling alone. Day in, day out friends come from every direction, both far and near.
