“Solitude as I understand it does not signify a miserable condition but rather, hidden royalty, profound incommunicability, yet a more or less somber knowledge of an unassailable singularity.” - Jean Genet
Remembering Nelson Mandela
The renowned world leader and civil rights icon passed away today at the age of 95.
Mandela himself was reticent to indulge in the myth-making that surrounded him:
"In real life we deal not with gods, but with ordinary humans like ourselves: men and women who are full of contradictions, who are stable and fickle, strong and weak, famous and infamous," he wrote in a letter to his wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, from prison in 1979.
But his lifetime of action, and transformation from being branded a terrorist and imprisoned by his opponents to a universally-applauded hero for not just his homeland of South Africa, but the whole world, makes him more than one of those “ordinary humans.”

Read that you should play Supersymmetry backwards and forwards at the same time so I mixed this together. Arcade Fire never ceases to amaze.

It is dreadful when something weighs on your mind, not to have a soul to unburden yourself to. You know what I mean. I tell my piano the things I used to tell you.
