Cool a life lesson

Having been in a situation like this only yesterday - the day before Valentine's Day (!) I am inclined to agree! However, in the RWS the boatman does all the rowing and the people in front of him are passive in the action - someone is helping them to get away from something that they would be powerless to do by themselves. Sometimes, when the hero appears, the victims are unable to help themselves.

The symbology of the rough water and the smooth waters are still there. Hopefully, this couple is moving to the smooth side. One person can still paddle a canoe full of people; it makes things go faster if there are more paddles!
