“Watching children grow…


picture from

“Watching children grow
is like threatening the ivy
to climb the garden wall.
You wait for it to happen
you hurry it along with love.
But still you’re disappointed
at giving someone life enough
to walk off on your own
and not be carried in your arms.
You never turn your back – not once,
and yet one day they’ve grown apart
or taller.
It’s all the same.
– Rod McKune

For G and S
I love you in the very special way, that I’ve written about in these pages

Edwin Hubbel Chapin once said, “Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.” That is the definition of a legacy. Wouldn’t you love to do something that might strike a beautiful chord that will “vibrate in eternity”?

The centenary of one of the world’s most loved and highly regarded human rights leaders was marked by the only authorized collection of Nelson Mandela’s correspondence during the twenty-seven years he was held as a political prisoner in South Africa. The book contains letters, almost two thirds of which have never been seen before. Some are incredibly moving and personal, including to his children, his wife and his friends. He left behind a huge archive of his years in captivity, indelible ink to his anger, resilience and love for his country and his family. The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela is edited by South African journalist Sahm Venter, with a foreword from Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela. They both speak with Kathryn Ryan.
