Even the river does not stop and it ultimately hurtles further to reach the sea, so large one cannot see its other end. Every day early in the morning, the see witnesses a fisherman in his bark setting off in hope for good catch. Yet, the sea is unfathomable: at once it appears as friendly as an old friend only to immediately storm and punish those not taking it seriously. Water can both give and take.
