We had experienced a heavy storm the afternoon before and the Comoro River was once again discharging muddy water into the sea. Dili Airport is to the right (west) and cetral Dili is out of picture to the east of the photo.

Very nice view from up there, Ian. Were you just departing or on your final approach for landing? The muddy water spreads into the sea creating a very interesting effect, which completes the beautiful landscape. Greetings, Liviu

Dear Liviu,

We had taken off, having lifted off towards the western end of the runway, and having turned to the east as we climbed, we were headed for Darwin. I had been in Dili primarily as a trainer of peacebuilders and I was there to encourage them and see them at work. I was most privileged to enter into some of the real "hot-spots" and to engage with those who formerly had been involved in conflicts in different, sad ways, but were now choosing a non-violent way. And to be with my brave men and women.

Leaving a place in which where I have been intensely involved is always difficult, but with my camera I am able to record the memory, the moment, the significance, and then allow it to provoke me to pray.

Thank you Marcello. Greetings from Sydney.

River to Sea

Hi Murilo,

The rivers flow to the sea, but the sea is never full!

Thanks for your visit to my gallery.
