If you look closely, you can see a boat, and on it four heads, lost below the horizon. How huge can the sea be to such dwarf humans? Truth is, there is no power struggle. People and the oceans make one entity: we glorify it and we are glorified; we kill it, we suffer. This photo, taken at a beach near Canot in Mauritius, depicts that. We are nothing but ants before the gargantuan sea. Hubris can make us think otherwise but we should face the fact: we are nothing in the lap of this immensity. Yet, it feeds us like a mother, carries us on its sun-glazed shoulders like a father - drowns us in bounties like would God.
