It’s been 48 hours since the legend that was Nelson Mandela passed. Or rather, the extraordinary human being that gave us a legend for the ages. The Earth is now orphaned by the loss of the father of freedom.

The three great milestones of “HOPE” (and I’m not talking about the Obamahope) in my lifetime have been the collapse of the Soviet Union, the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, and the release of Nelson Mandela from a South African jail after spending more than a 1/4 of his life behind bars.

Those who know me too well say I’m an “insta crash.” I have the ability to fall asleep in the most awkward of places and the strangest of times. It’s a gift.

And I dream. I dream in colour, the dreams have plot lines, no matter how insane, and if I don’t like my dream, I can wake up, figure out how to change the plot, and fall back asleep to finish off the story. In the words of that insipid 1977 Kenny Nolan song, I like dreaming. And I do it very well.
