Something interesting to think about:
How do you think you'd react if you met yourself?

So cool. Mapping the connections artists had with others.
MOMA has this cool website where one can click on an artist's name and see the names of people with whom they were connected.

My Tibetan teacher, Geshe Ngawang Dhargey made me memorize this sentence in Tibetan:
གོམས་ན་སླ་བར་མི་འགྱུར་བའི། །དངོས་དེ་གང་ཡང་ཡོད་མ་ཡིན།
Transliterated it says: 
gom na la war ming gyur way ngo day gang yang yeu ma yin.
It means, basically: There is nothing that does not become easy with familiarity.
It is from one of my favorite Buddhist texts, the Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra, written by Shantideva about 700 AD.

Hmmm. My sympathy to the daughter, Shelley. I can only imagine what kind of painful life she endured.

When Ruth Ford, the late actress and wife of Hollywood star Zachary Scott, died last year at age 98, she left behind two apartments at the storied Dakota building at 1 West 72nd Street — to her Nepalese butler. Her will, accepted last month in the Surrogate’s Court in Manhattan, revealed that with the exception of her clothing and costume jewelry, Ford’s entire, $8.4 million estate has been turned over not to her daughter, Shelley Scott, or to either of her two grandchildren, but to Indra Tamang, the butler, cook and caretaker whom she employed for more than 30 years.
