respect to novice

a life of thought? or just kids? how different can children really be? these kids may be dressed in orange and may hold some buddhist believes dear, but are they not just kids?

simple life? or a life of great empowerment? will the novices stay on and become monks? or will their life plans change?

many people i have met throughout burma have been a novice or monk at one time in their life. maybe doing so would help us all.

sometimes i think that a life as a monk would be something that I would enjoy and find at peace. but am I kidding myself? I think the reality is I would be another one who had been a monk at some stage, but for a short stage at that.
