The garden chair seater

Published on 18 September 2020 at 07:00

When I walk to the shopping street, I pass a house every day where a man sits on a green plastic garden chair every day in the front yard. Just for your imaging I live 7 minutes walk from the shopping street. 

It doesn't matter if it's summer, spring, fall; the man just sits there every day, has a perfectly manicured weed-free, grassy garden. It's really pure green grass - you really can't find a blade of grass that goes against the direction, is yellow; let alone longer than desired.

 

Did you say goodbye today, smiled at a stranger!

 

At first I thought it was a strange sensation, sitting in your front yard every day! When I pass by, he smiles friendly, says goodbye, and hopes for an answer in return. It is likely loneliness and a call for simple conversation. 

On the other hand, I have a lot of respect for this man! He is not behind the glas window and hides his situation; no he has the courage to just sitt outside out and is in need of a contact and people around him.  

Today I wrap a cloud blanket around anyone who is in need of a chat, contact, an arm around them. For anyone who is lost and does not know how or what. You are never alone, maybe there is no one physically present, but energetically we are all connected. 

Help each other by paying attention to each other.

   

It may sound like a cliché. You will be surprised how many people are willing or able to help you. It's that simple, you just have to put your chair outside. Only the people who pass by your garden at the right time and at the moment time, Are there to listen to you. Put an arm around you and heal your heart a little. Even though it may be fleeting or nothing tangible, it is real, pure and that is what matters.
