Beneath the surface

As the morning sun waits just below the horizon, gentle waves catch the light of a new day.  In this soft glow, what is hidden beneath the surface is partially revealed.  We get a glimpse of something deeper, while preserving a sense of mystery.

There are parallels between this image and people.  Often, we see only the surface; the outer person while the inner remains hidden.  Occasionally, in a soft moment, we get a fleeting glimpse of something beneath the surface and it changes our perspective.  Only after considerable time do we come to know the true complexities of a person, and more often than not, we find they are more similar to us than different.
