a chair


smooth old wood . curves with well worn marks of life 

  often creaky . yet still strong . a soft place to land

one chair in a charming room where I briefly stayed

  a reminder to embrace a simple moment 

 in the quiet light of day

Love that chair. You couldn't talk the owner into letting you take it home.

I can see so many stories around a simple wooden chair that I cannot understand people who have the power to throw it away :) Although it is against the rules of de-cluttering I would gladly keep such a beauty!

Loving your new blog header :)

honoring that chair, from "all sides now".....and below the trees, birds, buds.......we share a love for 'capturing' life's treasures!
