Moments of “contemplation” on the north bank of the River Senegal, West Africa – first light and shortly after.

I think, therefore I am,

said the famous philosopher

I am therefore, I think,


Conscious thought




Powerful activity

of brain & spirit,


I know myself

better than I know

anyone else, and better

than anyone else

will know me.


Such it is to be human,

made in divine image

with self-determination

& self-consciousness

A privilege – to be little

lower than angels

yet crowned with honour

above all creation

Such was, and is, the

Father’s pleasure, as He

looks upon me and

reflects: “Very Good”
