But today, at a family dinner party, was the very first time that he and I had a meaningful conversation about our respective occupations.
I found him to be very interesting and inspiring and I really hope that he writes the book that he spoke about. He has something important to say, and I think his message could have great impact on shaping young people's minds today.
“There is nothing wrong with building a castle in the air. The problem arises when you try to live in it,” he said when we spoke about taking the steps that helps one reach his/her goals.
I also connected with the Okafor family, who are Nigerian but have been adopted into my extended family.
They've finally opened the restaurant they were planning when I last saw them.
Based in Rosebank, the restaurant is called Hightable (www.hightable.co.za) and offers authentic North African cuisine. It was wonderful to see part of my friends' dreams come true.
