Soon after high tide, whilst watching the surfers laying prone on their boards paddling out to sea to catch the waves, I was aware of how different things looked with the water covering the beach.
As the tide flows out, the differences are uncovered. But they are always there. Just because they are not visible doesn't mean they have gone. At times, the rocks may be a few meters below the waves and no hindrance to the surfers, but as the tide recedes the rocks become closer to the surface, until finally being exposed, and visible.
It had me wondering about people and life, and the differences we can't see. On the surface, it may appear that all is equal. Until something changes, we don't see the foundations on which that life is built.
