Those early years invoked in him a great love of nature, particularly the Jungle and river where he spent so many happy hours with his family and friends.

Imej tangan yang memegang kertas panjang tersebut menggambarkan pencarian Sharlinie yang masih belum berakhir, dan saya catatkan perkataan 'di mana..di mana.. di mana' subjek Al-Quran tersebut adalah gambaran doa di mana apabila segala usaha dan sebagainya telah dilakukan, jalan terakhir hanyalah dengan berdoa dan tawakal.
