Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!
I have been a bit scarce in blogland. I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I hope to be
back to normal blogging in a few days.

Sit a Spell

Take rest; 
a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

As many of you know, I LOVE benches!
I do not see empty benches as lonely. I see them as
Inviting, Peaceful, Restful, Stress-less (is that a word?)
Maybe my all time favorite description for an empty bench is


To See Takes Time

Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven't time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
