Seattle is officially the world's first City of Compassion!

I'm off to a preproduction meeting - I'm on the production team of the day-long international webcast of the hoopla and celebration tomorrow (April 24, Saturday); lots of celebs and compassionistas are coming in to help at the Seattle Center for Spiritual Living.

It all started two years ago with a visit by the Dalai Lama, Bishop Desmond Tutu and other distinguished international leaders working for a more compassionate world to a Seattle mega-conference called Seeds of Compassion.

This is its first seedling. It means that Seattle is actively and publicly committed to doing all it can and devoting resources to help residents treat themselves and each other more compassionately.

I'll be taking pictures, which I'll download as soon as I can (I'll be working from 6:45am-11pm, so sometime after that).

Through the pressures, challenges and toils of the frenzied day, when I feel stressed I'll ask myself, "What would the Dali Lama do?"
