Archbishop emeritus and Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu is a man with a lot on his plate. How does he manage to juggle it all, one wonders? Do he and other SA icons ever get time to rest and relax? Find out with Dominique Heerman’s The Perfect Weekend – in which Tutu and others describe their down-time ideals. Here’s an extract from Tutu’s chapter:
Saturday I get up late-ish and I go for my morning walk. I do a 30-minute walk that makes me think I’m relatively healthy. I hope it does me some good.
If it doesn’t, I still think so. All of my walks I’m really praying, actually. I think of the globe and I take continent by continent and I try to lift it to God and say, “Look after them there.”
I usually have people that I’m praying for and I use the walk to think of them. But sometimes my mind goes off and it sees a beautiful girl and you’re not concentrating. Then there’s a temporary halt to the prayer.
