“Nelson Mandela may not have achieved all his goals during his five-year tenure in office, but he tried and he made a start. It is now up to others to ensure that they can fulfil Nelson Mandela’s vision for his South Africa. It’s to be hoped that they have the same commitment that he did.”

“The difference between the impossible and possible is merely a measure of man’s (person’s) will, determination and persistence.”

Photo by my old friend John (“the world’s third worst photographer”, so he calls himself), but whose photographic talents I definitely do NOT possess)!

High Flight

High Flight

“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds – and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I’ve topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.”
– Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee
No 412 squadron, RCAF
Killed 11 December 1941
