TP - Please Be Seated

So Many Reasons To 
Be Seated


When was the last time you spent a quiet moment
just doing nothing?

Or shared the same couch with family?

When was the last time you
Just sat and looked at the sea?

How about those reflections sitting on the water?

Taking a sit down break!

Or watched the wind blow through the tree limbs?

Or sat down to feel rippling waves?

  Have you taken off your clown nose
 so it can sit on the table?

Or sat down for a wet seat!

Or sat down to watch children playing in the park?

"At the end of the day,
 I just want to sit with someone I love 
and chat about what matters
and even what doesn't."
Crystal Woods

Take good care of you

One is so much engrossed with the rat race that those precious moments are missed and get to be rare occasions. They are daily episodes not difficult to do but difficult to accomplish. Very true Karen!

I haven't done many of those things for quite a while. But I felt curiously relaxed after reading your post! Thank you, Karen.

Great thoughts and fun in these. Sometimes I am too busy "working" to take the time. I will try to enjoy relaxing.

Karen, we have become well practiced in the art of standing and staring, in recent years. Lovely words and pics, as usual.

Quiet moments watching the water are the best.

If your clown nose was that big I would have loved to have seen you in the full outfit, seated or not.
