The Return of Hair

I was prepared to be a monk. I kept choosing shorter and shorter hairstyles, or my stylist lead me there compassionately. Who knew, that as your hair gets really thin, the cowlicks stick up unmercifully? I was picturing myself with a bald head. I was identifying with my son, Jake who had to go through this. I stopped wearing makeup, since monks don't, and wouldn't it look unbalanced? I considered a wig; told stories about always wanting one. But! little hairs have made a comeback in the naked temple area. I think it was the Reike.
