The disciple asked: “Are we there yet?”
The master answered: “There is no there – only here.”

The disciple continued: “What time is it?”
The master answered: “Now?”

The disciple asked: “Why do you give cryptic answers?”
The master answered: “Why do you ask questions? Breathe in, breathe out.”

  • A wise person once said that one is either now … here or he is nowhere.
  • Do you agree?
  • What role can the past and the future play in this ever unfolding now?

An artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.
