The young - and some not so young creators of these masterpieces are finished for the day. They have downed tools and gone off to have fun elsewhere. Come the next tide, their efforts will be washed away.
I think I am learning, albeit slowly, that some things in life would benefit from the same kind of treatment. Enjoyment for a time but moving on with no regrets.
There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven..
Even in the small every day things of life, wouldn't it be good to be able to read the signs, discern what is important and worth hanging on to and be able to discard the rest with abandonment? The abandonment of knowing that there is another day, another beach, another work worth throwing ourselves into.
