His Ship Came In And He Was Sleeping!

This picture tells a wonderful story. Depending on your background, everyone has a different take on this picture.

I see a heavy metal structure, carrying tons of weight and is supported by the buoyancy of water. Simple amazing. How can water support such a heavy structure, something so heavy that it takes giant cranes to lift it from the dry dock to the sea.

Water and air, easily managed in small quantities, is very dangerous in large quantities. I think it's similar to what the Chinese use to say, the Ying and Yang, or something like that.

Mother Nature is very powerful, yet subtle. It's unfortunate that we cannot work in tandem with Mother Nature and not violate her, as we often do.
