Benches are an invitation for us to sit, rest, enjoy the moment- the view-song of the birds- a good conversation or the simplicity of just being for a few moments.
Benches have stories. Each person that sat on a bench leaves a trace of themselves behind- perhaps an energy. At a crowded bus stop the bench is energy mixed with exhaustion. At a park it is quiet thoughts, romantic meetings, sleepy moms and reflective older gentlemen.
