South Africa: View from Robben Island
The tour guide here knew the place first-hand - he'd been a political prisoner there for six and a half years, living in a roughly 6 foot by 4 foot cell with the exception of the times he was let out for eight hours a day to toil in the lime quarry. He'd become an activist at age 15, training in exile for several years before his return and inevitable arrest at age 26.

When I picked up the photos from Ritz Camera, I reflected on what I'd done that day to benefit the world: Did pilates, bought a new coffee press.

Sometimes we just need perspective.
