I Asked Him About The Tibetan Robe

March 30, 2017

I asked him about the Tibetan robe—it was a nice story, I said, but I didn’t know anyone confident enough to identify an ancient robe in a vintage shop far from home and make it their own, bring it back to their own life. How do you become a person who can do that? ‘I just choose,’ he said. ‘That was my choice. I just said, ‘Okay: I’m going to wear this.’ You just want to wear something other people will think looks great? Or something you are excited by? I choose: I want to be excited!’
