When I was approximately 12 or 13 years old, I used to play in the tent with my family during summer time. We pitched the tent in the middle of the beautiful green pastures in Tibet with blooming flowers all around …then we would bring food like yogurt and sweet snacks and ate together during the day. So when I’m in this tent here in my backyard , it reminded me of my carefree childhood days back in Tibet.
Some neighbors saw me sitting in the tent today and asked me if it was a special day? I then replied that it reminded me of my younger days in my beautiful homeland and it makes me really happy.
