On a sunny summer afternoon I observed a couple by the ocean discussing something for a long time. After a while, he was unresponsive to her talking and continued looking at the waves. Finally, she lowered her head in defeat and remained silent. I imagined a break up between them and I could feel the sadness of that moment in contradiction with the beauty of the place and the waves breaking up, breaking up all the time.
