Thank you!

>> "To glimpse one is to see
the spark of a meteor in a dark sky."

That is a wonderful image. Such a brush with holiness may only last an instant, but if you let it, it can change you forever. <<

I'm glad it worked for you so well! That's how I feel about certain numinous experiences. They go by fast, but they change everything.

>> I've always loved the legend of the Tzadikim Nistarim. <<

Me too.

>> I was a little unclear on it at first, though, in true 4 year old fashion. Asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, that was my answer. <<

I have two thoughts on this:

1) It's a great aspiration.

2) Given the technical parameters of the class, if the members can't know who they are ... then nobody else can know they're not one. So your wish, like Schrodinger's cat, may or may not have come true. If you were a tzadik, what if anything would you be doing differently? It's like a Jewish koan.
