Nelson Mandela, Raindrops and Concert

Mandela's words

Mandela’s words

1   What a wise man Mandela was and what a loss to the world. It’s a pity a man like that can’t live for ever but we hope his influence and legacy will.

2    I love how the raindrops magnify the veins on the leaves.

Raindrops on three leaves

3   The Suitcase Singers did a brilliant gig tonight! This is the stage afterwards with the leftover feather from some of the boas. Sorry I don’t have a photo of the choir. Everyone really dresses up for these gigs in black with bright colours and lots of glitter. We are told that we look fantastic!

    Beautiful photography matching wise words.

    It amazes me that from the mouths of those who suffer so much, come words of immense love and forgiveness; it is those people we remember. They, their words and their deeds become the stuff of history while their tormentors are forgotten.

    I think Mandela’s legacy will live for a long time. He is an inspiration to so many, young and old.
