For those who have visited the desert areas and experienced sand dunes, they probably have seen how the shapes and arrangements of these sand dunes quickly change as soon as the wind blows over them. Some have been to the beach and probably wrote names of their loved ones in the sand on the shoreline, to great disappointment when the great waves wash the beach, the names are erased in a huff.
