There are some people who look really good in photos, but come across as unimpressive in real life because of their awkward mannerisms and lack of self-confidence. There are also others who look goofy or cute in photos, but whose confident attitude and friendliness give them a stature and shine that is not captured on film.

There is a Falun Dafa guy who sits on the grass just off the Diag and practices qigong with a sign in front of him explaining the basics of his conviction. I thought that the snow would surely drive him indoors. Last week, he proved me wrong by clearing out a small space in the snow, setting up his sign, and standing perfectly still—insanity in this weather—and carrying on as usual. I haven't seen the Diag preachers out lately. I greatly admire this guy.
