I had a dream that we had drinks together and shared our love of traditional vestments and Renaissance art. I explained to him I kept it secret until now because I was hurt he hadn't friended me years ago. I was very shy about meeting him, convinced that he disliked me, so I hesitated to tell him how fond I am of him, and how much I wanted to be his friend. He said he wanted that too. It was so nice. We had drinks and talked about rubrics and vestments and chant. I woke up feeling great affection for Fr. Z.
I know it was a dream, but it made me think. I don't want to criticize or complain about people online anymore. I don't want to argue and disagree and be disagreeable and always critical of people who may be unhappy or angry about something. I want to be content to let others do that - if they choose to do so. I'm content to let others be in their opinion and judgement. If I disagree, what does it matter? If someone contradicts me, that is good. If I am envious or feel slighted, I need to deal with it and not put it on others.
I hope I can do that.
