About the tree of life…

Pawpaw

“Each of us has a unique existence, and we each have our special anniversaries… Some of us about to be born, some of us celebrating birthdays as children, some in our prime, some getting on in our years… Yet, we are all inherently connected and belong to the same tree…” – Pawpaw tree, Moka, Mauritius

About food for the soul…

Glowing sunset

“Why does your spirit awaken when you take a look at the vista in front of you? Why do you feel the need to believe in something heavenly and magical? Why is there, in your heart, a flutter of belief in the unseen? Why does His glory come to mind?…” – Sunset over the western coast of Mauritius

About mystery…

Fody in the grass

“If you look closely, you will be able to make me out… However, 1) I am a rare species from the weaver family, 2) I am endemic to the island of Mauritius and importantly, 3) I am classified as being endangered… Do you then blame me for not coming out into the open?” – Fody, at Moka, Mauritius

About hope…

Hibiscus bloom

“Look at my pure, innocent face… study it carefully… You will see, in it, the possibility of a new dawn… a happier, brighter future full of love, laughter and fulfilment… So, stay strong!” – Hibiscus in full bloom, Oceanside Apartments, Mauritius

About love…

Moon at Gris Gris

“True love is like a shining beacon… it is clearly visible whether it finds itself in joyous or sorrowful circumstances. Much like how you behold my beauty in spite of the many colours around me…” – Moon in the sky over the southern part of Mauritius
