Here's a Creative Exercise for you.
I suggest that he get a tattoo. As you can see, he has plenty of room on his arm. And not only that, check out the clothes he wears: his apparel leaves lots of room for either a bicep tat or a shoulder one (or both!).
Here's my question for you: what tattoo would you recommend for the Dalai Lama? The tattoo can be permanent (ink) or temporary (henna).
(He probably won't get a Chinese symbol, or maybe he would.)
Note: I saw the Dalai Lama in 1976 in Pomona, California. My wife Wendy has heard him two additional times: in 1989 in San Diego and in 2005 at Stanford. Interestingly enough, Wendy gave him a Creative Whack Pack in 1989 and the next day he won the Nobel Peace Prize. Coincidence? Or something more cosmic?
