The muddy intertidal plain on the coastal area of Pusong, Lhokseumawe, Aceh, was used as a mooring place for canoes by local fishermen.
Incidentally while at the location, I met a fisherman. I asked him questions, and among his friendly answers, I concluded, "Sailing during low tide, looking for natural blessings on the coastline." He answered philosophically in Acehnese, he didn't give a detailed answer about what he does while sailing. Instead, he asked back, "Are you a journalist?" I replied, "No, just a hobbyist photographer." He ignored me and went straight to his canoe which was moored there.
The fisherman prepared everything to sail, struggling on his own to push the boat into the puddle of water. The muscles in his arms showed that he was a hard worker.
After observing his surroundings for a moment, he got into a boat and rowed in a puddle on the muddy tidal flats of Pusong, Lhokseumawe, Aceh. He equipped his boat with fishing nets, hoping to receive plentiful blessings.
Keep working hard.
There will be a time when nature yields blessings.
Continue to struggle.
And be patient!
