The left swan on the Thames rather says it all. There were other swans, too, but this one was a bit apart--alone; but with friends nearby. It could, at times, glide along peacefully, able to become part of its universe. Still, there was the knowing that it needed to paddle hard in order to survive against the wake of life.
