I let my hair grow because I am tired of being cold in unheated rooms/monastery/office/church. Someone said that now I look like Pierce Brosnan. Lots of people have seen me with my longer hair, but this one person, an oasis of kindness gave me a compliment. I think that the actor is handsome, so if I look like him then maybe I am handsome too? I get compliments about preaching, being funny, nice and sometimes insightful in teaching. But nothing beats handsome. OK. I am vain, or delusional. But if I like such a compliment, maybe I can make someone else's day who I feel is quite lovely, handsome, beautiful but never say anything of the sort. If there is something attractive about a person, tell them. I am tired of being a good, but ugly preacher! Bring on the handsome.
