When Words Are Not Enough

the bench

The bench – a silent witness to my meanderings.

A few years ago, our two big Tamarind trees got uprooted by a typhoon. My brother had the big trunks made into benches and tables and put them in one corner of our garden in the province. I seldom visit the place now but every time I do, I spend the early morning or a late afternoon in this bench. A perfect place for that cup of coffee while admiring the vast garden with lovely flowers all around. A perfect place to chat and be updated with news. A perfect place to talk about anything under the sun.

And here I thought it would be easy to create and start another blog. Starting all over again but that is the challenge of blogging. This is a continuation of my other blog called Dreams and Escapes. It is still a work in progress...

  4. That’s a great idea. To remember. I’d probably bury my dog’s remains there.


  5. Beautiful post, benches are very symbolical, yet they are more than often ignored.
