I was once in South Africa with a community organizer. She took me to a place she said was a beautiful lake. She showed me all its secrets and described the nature of its blue color. I saw nothing. She kept saying, look deeper. I did and realized I was looking at her dream, not her reality. She was trying to get irrigation and local water. After several more years of touring pilgrims through her desert, she did. Visualizing the lake was part of her campaign.
