“Is it possible for the Light to touch me? I am dark, earthy… I have very little to show for all my devotion… The Light shines brightly showering all before it with a luminescence to behold… But what about me? Can I be so privileged? Is there hope for me? I know that it is not what I do that matters, it is how I am… To exist in a way that makes me ready to receive the Light… The Light is omnipresent, shining like a brilliant star… my search just needs me to reflect, remember and be…” – Silhouette of a leafy branch in the shining sunset, Mauritius, 2016
“Do you think I deserve the drops of rain from on high that caress my leaves? Do you think it rains because of the effort that I expend in my existence?

“As the rays of Your Blessing shine through me, all my hopes of safety, peace and salvation are cast adrift… All I can do is join the twinkle and sparkle of Light… bobbing and swaying this way and that… nothing else matters… I want to lose myself in the Dance of Light…” – Boat at sunset off the western coast of Mauritius at Flic en Flac
“What is the clamour in the world about this god or that god? What is the fuss about this ritual or that ritual? Why the heinous confusion about what defines piety? Is it not true that there is only Him and the way ahead for all of us is made up of sincerity, honesty, generosity, kindness, respect, restraint, faith, love, reciprocity…? – Sunset reflections looking out to the Indian Ocean from the western coast of Mauritius
