A very old photograph of a romantic sunrise off the coast of the Island of Mauritius. Taken in 1974 while on honeymoon. At the time, I recall spending very little time taking photographs of sunsets. It was also there, I saw the largest Rock-lobster I had ever seen, my wife’ had a school friend, Helena, who had emigrated to the Island with her husband, Rob, an engineer, overseeing the construction of a few Casinos in and around Port Louis and in fact, as luck would have it, they lived a short 3-minute walk from the holiday villa we were staying in, in Grand Bay.  It was there, he had pulled out from their chest freezer, the 30-inches long Rock-lobster exoskeleton, measuring, from the tip of its carapace to the tip of its tail. It had to be a world record. 

NOTE: The American Lobster apparently grows larger in size but is a different species altogether.

Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of heaven and earth, (God), the one who gave us all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.
