I just watched a quick bio of Lord Nelson. He was such an extraordinary man. Not just because of his brilliance as a naval commander — the thing that most remember him for. As much it is because of why he took on the role that led him to that pose.
Nelson had an extraordinary need to be loved. By his mistress and by the British people. He would do anything to earn that love. And he did. Check out the video. It reveals the power of sustained emotion. That need to be loved. Enjoy!
