Our friends Phuni and Wangchuk Meston, author of Comes the Peace: My Journey to Forgiveness, are the Boldfacers in this week's edition of the Boston online publication. The article is touching and so is the video - not to mention the beautiful pictures of the two of them. Here's a little excerpt but be sure to click through for the whole, incredible story of these two inspirations:
By the time Daja and Phuni Meston met and fell in love, they had been through slavery, monasteries, abandonment and war; in short, the stuff of epic films. But this was not fiction but fact, not plot but destiny.
They own Karma Boutique in Newton, far away from the south Indian refugee camp where Phuni spent her childhood and what might as well be a planet away from where Daja grew up—in a Nepalese monastery, where his mother left him as a toddler and where he became an ordained monk at 16. No, Newton, draped in double-mocha lattes, Range Rovers and couture cocktail sheaths, is easily the last spot Phuni and Daja imagined finding meaning. But there you go. Life’s a trip that way.
