A Good Bench in The Woods

I like to find a good bench in the woods, I think that it is important for solving the problems of the world and the problems in my life.

 

Something about having a place to sit, soak up a little sun on a cool autumn day and think about things that need to be thought about.

 

Find a bench in a forest near you, I think that you will be glad that you did.

 

If you need help finding a bench or a forest, let me know, I would be glad to help.

 

Bob

Good morning Bob. That bench was put there for a purpose and you have already mentioned all the reasons. There was no accident here.

Good morning Bob,

They converted the ole trolley bed into a trail and there are a few along the walk now; and yes it is a great place to contemplate the days news.

Make yourself a great day.

Nothing like taking time to sit and absorb all the energy around you.  This type of activity or rather lack of activity helps me feel centered for long stretches of time and helps me travel the distance.

I'm with you!  What the world needs is more benches in beautiful natural settings.  Woods are fine but beaches and mountaintops can work as well.  I find that a few minutes on a bench puts the petty aggravations of real estate in perspective,

Bob: That is a very healthy tip that we all should experience very soon. It would definitely help to decompress and help us prioritize what is important in our lives. Thanks!

Good morning Bob, the nieghborhood that I lived in when I was in Williamsburg Virginia had trail in the woods with a bench in it.  I loved going there to sit and enjoy nature.

I know that a few of the benches I have made have ended up in trees....maybe not a forest, though.  LOL!

OH Bob when I lived in MN we had a lovely bench swing overlooking the lake and it was so inviting and relaxing to share a cup of coffee with my Mom and just 'be'.

I have a couple of pictures of benches that I like to even look at for a bit of peace and quiet.

Hi Bob! I do enjoy sitting on a bench in a park, in the sun, but I'm a better thinker on my feet-walking!

My bench is my deer stand about a 100 yards into the woods.  I use it year round.

There  is nothing like a sit in the woods that is for sure. I love the quite noise of Texoma a walk in the woods or a drive with my husband in the old one ton dually out in the back 40
