Sampan ride - yes or no?

How you ride your life is your choice. This place is actually a sampan ride section located in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. It is meant for tourist attraction. However, i managed to capture this unique photo when the water was mirroring the high ceiling on one side of the small canal while the other side was calm water. Mini sampan/boats are resting on both sides of the canal. The message i received from this photo is life can be rough and calm (represented by the water patterns) while support is available at our side (represented by sampan/boats) all the time. Whether we ride our life in a chaotic manner? at peace? or run away from reality by moving away from this photo? is definitely a choice of an individual. After all, it takes a little wisdom and courage to make life choices.
