Sitting on the park bench, sometimes it could be misunderstood
A bench is a piece of furniture clothed with many paradoxes from time to time
especially those standing outdoors could also be the subject of many prejudices.
Most seem benches are so nice when standing unused idyllic in the cityscape
if there is a single person, we think the person is lonely and unhappy
if there are two people we believe they are lovers or having an affair
if there are 3 or more young people, so we think there is a risk of trouble
if there are 3 or more old people, we think they are forgotten and neglected
if there are 3 or more neither young nor old people, we think they are unemployed.
But benches are also used as “contact platforms” in various connections.
“See you at the bench at *** Road”
“See you at the bench under the clock at *** station“

Take good care of the city benches, many homeless use them for night sleeping.

Thursday’s Special “non-theme”: “Horizon“
How far away is our horizon probably it is very subjective
I guess it will varies from person to person and from time to time
when one have seen often – on the way through the city at night time
with homeless sleeping on the benches – so get horizons an extra dimension.
