Nelson Mandela died yesterday at the age of 95. I never knew him; I only knew of him. And, I don't know as much about him as I feel I should. What I learned, here and there, was from the music I listened to and the news after he was freed. There are so many dimensions of him that I have not yet seen and now he is gone.
I feel this ache at his loss. It's indescribable. Just that he is gone and we are empty without his presence. We have lost something, someone special.
This song reminds me of him. I heard that it was a song that stirred him. Me too. Rest in Peace, Mr. Mandela.
