Adam Yauch, aka MCA, aka Horatio Hornblower, 1964-2012

"After the session as I left the room I noticed some people gathering in front of one of the doors to the auditorium. They were lining the sides of the doors waiting for His Holiness [the Dalai Lama] to exit. I joined them. A second later he came walking through the doors. As he walked he’d stop and shake hands with people. Some of the people burst into tears as he touched them. Others smiled back at him. Then he got to me, clasped both of my hands in his, looked deep into my eyes and burst out laughing. It was such a sweet laugh, nothing mocking about it. It was like a child’s laugh. It warmed me in a way that I could not help but smile back." -Adam Yauch
