The Don Quixote in Me


Democratic chivalry best describes the greatest essence of every man and women who dreams the impossible dream and fights the unbeatable foe etc. etc. Anyone who has ever read Don Quixote or seen the movie or play of Man from La Mancha has got to have identified somewhat with either Don Quixote or Sancho Panza. I identified with both. Sancho was a realist and loyal servant to a madman, who began to understand the madness of Don Quixote. Always questioning and doubting the actions of his master. He reluctantly played the part of a squire to a mad knight on his quest only to find himself unable to reach the level of self abandonment or allow himself to see the world in a different light.

To become a self proclaimed knight of chivalric deeds on a quest to right the wrongs of the world one cannot consider his immediate circumstances or his immediate difficulties. He must look to the future and present, with the optimism and faith of the full and complete metamorphosis of reality. Everyone has done this in their minds by moving from one room to another, or one memory to another. With each thought and motion we change our reality or view of all we see. A different angle or idea can solve a problem or right a wrong. “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” One man’s dream is another man’s reality. How does it happen? How does it become? Simply through the imagination of the dreamer. Don Quixote saw a barber’s brass bowl as a golden helmet. He saw an old nag as a mighty steed. He saw a prostitute as a lady of refinement and virginity her beauty worthy of his love, her memory worthy of his poetry. I am not saying that he was right but, I am saying that if we do not know the character of a person prior to meeting them, and they present themselves with charm and dignity, most people will accept one another openly and often will think the best of the other person.

I try hard to honor my friends and I am not a rich man who can afford lavish gifts for those I care for. But I can give generously all the praise and gratitude I can sincerely bestow on all who I am grateful for or indebted to. In this way I raise my friends to the status of noblemen and women because to me they are. If a man esteems his own life worthy of having such good and true friends, then his friends if they are true must consider him honorable and worthy of their friendship as well. A man or woman who lives either in madness or reality and their estimate of those they wish to have around them is their only compass and measure to determining the value of their own lives..
