Burning sun touches my cheeks, bringing with it a light that I hope will rest with me throughout the months ahead… And I lie, each moment becoming more absorbed by the comforting, warm glow – its touch penetrates and lifts my heart. With it, an expectation, a hope filling my chest… Perhaps they are childhood memories that give me this sensation, perhaps that solar heat, energy, nourishing me, allowing me to emerge from the winter chill and enabling me to generate my own newness, freshness, life… So the seed sewn within me has, once again, the chance to flourish, energised by the world outside, gestating until the moment of release, straight from the soul, pure and razor sharp in clarity… ready, to radiate, waves, as from the sea to the gentle breeze that now caresses my neck… So I see my journey to another, the imperceptible embrace of aura, with which we give and receive. That glow of an idea, thought, expression, impossible without connection, without communication, without the fusion of old and new. Here we stand at that moment, when the strawberry has ripened and we can finally begin to sample the fullness of its flavour. It too, as we are, for the most part, is water… Welcome to this edition of The Exchange on Sunday! Sooree Pillay
