I came across this bench the other day. Not only was it a good photo op but also a nice place to pause and take a little break. Nestled up against a sturdy, grounding tree, with various little flowers popping up all around it, showing off their array of colors, it gave me a moment to breathe and ponder the beauty of the rest of the garden around me. The shade was cool and I felt my body relax. I felt my mind just be. For a second, there were no worries, no thoughts, no racing here or there, no rushing to get things done. Just me, the bench, the tree, the flowers.
