In Photos – La Tour Eiffel

Awaiting the illumination of the 125-year-old iconic Parisian landmark on a pleasant summer evening on the Champ de Mars, ought to have been a romantic experience.

Serengeti – The Cycle OF Life

The ‘endless plains’ stretched ahead of us. Tranquil. Seemingly light years from the stressful demands of our life in the big city. The passage of time marked only by the movement of the sun. We were aware by now, after our dawn to dusk game drives in Tarangire and Ngorongoro, that the tranquility conceals a dynamic eco system where the pressures of survival outweigh a placid […]

And this huge mass of people – an estimated 2500 at any given time, and a whopping 2+ million per day! – surge forward in every direction in […]

Around The World In circles

The Circle. The Bindu. The Mandala. All ancient symbols of the infinite. The Cosmos. Defined by its center. The anchor of consciousness. Its circumference representing continuum. The whole. The end, and the beginning. The sun, the moon, the stars. The divine halo. The seasons. The tides. Time….every single hour, minute and second. Life. All cyclical. All circular. Join […]
