Sit a Spell

Stone Bench

Stone Bench

I have sat on this bench many times. I have felt the cool stone against my legs. I have heard the flow of the waterfall across the rocks below. I have breathed in the serenity of the calm spot, seeking to settle my thoughts, if only for a moment.

  1. Sometimes it is lovely to be able to sit quietly and admire a view, or listen to the gentle ripple of water alongside a stream. Even better is to turn a corner from the norm and enter another world. I did this years ago, walking along a country footpath, through a clump of trees, into the beauty of a natural valley, The sight of so many different hues of greens and golds and a clear blue sky was breathtaking. Obviously someone else had thought so too, as there was a bench immediately in front of me. I didn’t see a soul for almost an hour. Bliss.


  2. Hi Terri, thank you for participating in my photo challenge. I agree that from what you have described and shown us in the photo, it does sound a lovely calm place to sit.
    Best wishes,
