Damn you, reality! But Hogwarts or no Hogwarts, there will always be magic in our lives. This month, Santa willleave a little present in our lounge every night or two. We will track his movements on my computer, we will go and see him in the mall and he will leave powdery white footprints on our stairs on Christmas Eve.

Because it’s my job as a father to teach her how to dream. Dreams are the most important things on earth.That is, after all, what keeps us going. Dreams about the eradication of corruption. Dreams of a strong economy, quality education, a crime-free South Africa and roads without potholes. headtopics.com
