Thomas Merton ~

Last night I had this funny dream: I was beside Merton in a choir stall and he was bent down low over a tape recorder and started to play a tape of a hundred children voices laughing lightheartedly. All the other monks started laughing, too. Merton looked up at me with a knavish smile on his face. Someone said: That's Merton again, up to another one of his tricks.

I bet that you woke up laughing yourself. What a great dream!

I read that he had his novices laughing oftentimes in his conferences. Merton must have been a jolly soul.

From what I've read about him this doesn't sound impossible at all!
