I was watching another great movie again recently, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

What a classic story, re-done with such style - it has such a good script. Here is a scene that has great resonance with me:

How is it that a once arrogant young nobleman, has found contentment living rough with the salt of the earth?

I've seen knights in armour panic at the first hymns of battle. And I've seen the loneliest, unarmed squire pull a spear from his own body, to defend a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright, it's defined by ones actions.

It's interesting to hear you say that.

I didn't. My father did.

There is a great energy in South Africa. Everywhere I go there are positive vibes. Quite a change from just a month ago.

Something good is in the air!

I drive through a little suburb called Robindale everyday. There, all the streets are named after the characters from the movie Robin Hood. When it’s overcast and rainy and wet, like it has been the past few weeks, it really feels as though you are driving through a little piece of mystical England. So peaceful and surreal … Some beautiful music in the movie too.
