Pull up a seat

You are welcome to this tiny island with a tree, a lovely lawn with just one comfortable chair.

You can bring your bottles.

Unfortunately, you alone can occupy this island.

If you bring anybody with you, they only can swim around watching you enjoy Nature!

Better not to invite anybody.

“You can’t be unhappy in the middle of a big, beautiful River” Jim Harrison

 

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Welcome to the missing seat!

“When we look at an empty chair and say ‘the chair is empty’, the ’emptiness’ gets angry because the chair is actually not empty, the ’emptiness’ is sitting there!” Mehmet Murat ildan

It amazed me to see this chair

Is this a missing seat or an empty chair?

Why it’s kept?

What is the idea behind it?

Is somebody trying to make a fool of us?

Does somebody want to send us a message?

What type of message?

I am not sure.

In this type of situation, what one can do best?

“There is something much better than sitting on an empty chair and that is to watch it and to let it inspire you to think deeply!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Is emptiness important in our life?

Yes.

My friend, we require emptiness for us so that we can fill it up with what we wish to possess.

But western & eastern philosophies have opposite views

Yes, while the western world sees emptiness as negative (Depression/Nihilism) resulting in anxiety.

The eastern world thinks of it as a positive aspect of life.

According to Lao Tzu,

He gives examples of the Center hole in a Wheel, the Emptiness of a pot and the Empty space in a house.

Because there is an emptiness in these situations, things become valuable.

“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the centre hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable.”

Thank you.

Get set for a relaxing ride

“Do what is uncommon; do it in the uncommon way” Israelmore Ayivo

A Warm welcome from the hot pavement!

I noticed this sofa on the pavement.

I don’t know whose idea is this!

I am not sure whether it’s going to be transported or not.

Maybe road users and passers-by, can use this?

If it’s so, it’s a good Samaritan job in this hot weather, for someone to relax?

Great idea & tempting too!.

Why not just take a nap?

“It’s all about finding the calm in chaos” Donna Karan

Thank you.

Pull up a seat

The topic reminded me of the recent ‘Sofagate’ event where the first female chief of The European commission, Ursula von der Leyen was hurt by not having a chair to sit in during a meeting.

Thank you.

Pull up a seat

“Comfort rules. You want to be able to sit in a good chair comfortably for a few hours and be able to talk and enjoy a glass of wine. There’s nothing worse than sitting in an uncomfortable chair”. Amanda Pays

I had many smiles when I noticed a swimming pool lounger placed at an angle probably to be used as a beach relaxing seat.

I am sure whoever tries to sit on this chair must be a gymnast expert!

Food for thought

Do you know your chair might be killing you?

Don’t believe it?

“I’ve got too many of my friends that retired and went home and got on a rocking chair, and about a year and a half later, I’m always going to the cemetery”  Red Adair

Probably sitting for long hours on the chair may be something to do with heart attacks since not much of activity is undertaken.

Xingfu Mama wants us to take photos of  PLACES WE SIT…OR MIGHT SIT…OR ART, ABOUT SITTING.

It’s interesting for me because I never felt the need to take photos of seats unless it’s ornamental.

Thank you Xingfu Mama for the inspiration.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
