Come, Sit With Me And Have A Thought... (and maybe some chips.)

December 2019 · 2 min read


I want you to join me on this bench. Yes, you, the reader, the traveler, the nomad and the adventurer. I have chosen, today, to make my contribution to the community by sharing something beautiful. This place (photo that I snapped in North Bend, Oregon) is to me, just that: beautiful.

I sat here, watching birds as they flapped their wings in the water of the bay. Just up the street, about a block and a half away, there is a busy highway. Usually, the unnatural sound of the large semi-trucks, as they rumble down the roadway, would detract from the scenery. However, the floor of the bay seems to break down the sound, successfully muffling it's monotony within the soft, damp soil. The air is heavy and still, with only a slight wandering across the tidally confused waters.

My question for you, my reader, empowered with imagination, is this: What are your thoughts? How do you feel? Close your eyes and imagine yourself seated on this, one bench. This is the only bench, uniquely placed here, in the entire universe. That fact, alone, makes this bench special, but a bench is made for sitting and without someone to sit and think on it, it is just another bench. So help me make this bench's day. This may be the only time in all of eternity that it gets this much attention or thought!

By the way... we have some company... I think it's here for @riverflows...

This is a very overfed seagull, in case you get lonely.


... This is what I thought... so what did you think? I am excited to read some responses :)
