On the ivory sand under an endless ebony sky, the waves gently kiss the shore. On a lamp-lit path weaving through residential neighbourhoods, a pair of lovebirds nestles in the trees. In a tiny apartment of a high-rise building, a small family looks up to the heavens. Beneath the winding starlit river of the milky way, melancholy thoughts persist - but these too, are minuscule in the face of the cosmos.
