Photographer's Note

Thoughts, memories, desires, hallucinations, fears, nostalgia, hopes, obessions, wishes... will vanish in the quiet lapping of the water.

In front of the sacred Ganga river, or in contemplation of the ocean, the incessant movement of the flowing water reminds us that nothing is permanent, and eventually, that troubles and sadness, like passion and happiness, will also pass, in a constant renewal of our states of mind. The only permanency, in this impermanent mental and emotional flow, is the movement, like those of the water. Things will move and change the next minute, hour, day, week, ... ect.

Our certitudes will be dissolved by the next experience. Our beliefs will melt in new concepts. Our fears will be drowned by the next wave of emotions.

At the end, remains only the quiet and reassuring rocking of the water. Like a maternal embrace of the origins. A view that leads us back to the core of our life. A promise of peace and if necessary, of redemption.

And we stay still, hypnotized, by the consciousness of a reachable Nirvana.

If only we were really trying to attain it!

Dedicated to Sayeed who failed to be a sadhu in this life but might suceed in the next ?! :)

Actually, dedicated to you ONLY if you MOVE your a... from the nuptial bedroom to take a new serie of photos, dear!
