South Africa & Madiba On My Mind

Like so much of the world, I am anxiously reading news of Nelson Mandela. We all know he is frail and certainly not young. That said, his presence makes the world a better place. He had been one of my heroes for many years and as I write this I am looking at a quote of his that I keep on my desk.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it… The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

So much has been and is being said about Mandela but in my small way, I keep him in my prayers by my thoughts and South Africa in my mind by drinking their wines and toasting to him. My most recent article on South African wines was part of a round-up by bloggers who participated in the Snooth PVA bloggers weekend in March.
