“Remembering Laki on his Birthday”

Remembering Laki Senanayake on his birthday.

I cannot remember when I first met Laki, but I remember every conversation we have had on art, the forest, biodiversity and life.

Laki was a free spirit, non-judgmental, kind, brilliant and witty. He refused to take himself seriously. On Sunday, the Barberyn Family and Lakis associates from the village celebrated Laki with deep respect and gratitude, giving alms to the Bikkhunis at the Aranya next door and having lunch in Lakis gallery.
