gushing about a mentor

i wrote a while back about mentoring.  i wrote that i want a mentor, someone to help me grow and show interest in making me a better person.  i hope that someday i can gush about a mentor like Scoble recently did on his blog:

they don't have to be someone super-cool that can get me into net lunches or introduce me to fantastical people.  but i do wish that i know someone who, if they came up to me while i was standing in line for a meal I already paid $80 dollars for, and said "follow me," i'd go in a heartbeat.

 i guess, in many ways, i wish i had a rabbi.
