Dear friends: Please view these snowed-in companion chairs in your mind’s eye as awaiting our critterly friends in more than one spot along the path of their quest!
I cannot remember seeing a better photographic capture of the symbols and essence of true friendship. Those companionable chairs waiting through the snows of winter for the spring sunshine that will bring the friends back out for a chat! Very, very wonderful! Would that all people all over the world had chairs like this awaiting them.

    Yes Granbee, I often look at the seats in our Town and as I pass I watch the various different faces who sit down next to strangers and often a smile or gesture brings about a conversation… They are then no longer strangers…
    If we could all be realise that none of us are strangers… But all of us connected.. Just like those Seasons… Each seemingly seperate, but each one taking its place as it helps the world to grow,..
    We each of us are taking our places Granbee.. Keep my seat warm! 😉

      This is why I love you, Sister Sue–you always perceive the ways we connect soul-to-soul as peoples of the earth! Let our warm hearts melt the snows from chatting chairs always and everywhere!

      Fergie, I am so very grateful to be able to reblog this fabulous post of yours! I cannot think of a more effective symbol for patient, loyal, faithful and lasting friendship than these snowbound companion chairs awaiting return of warmer weather to allow such friendly side-by-side chats.

        These chairs were made by hubby’s good friends and are on our deck. Hubby and I enjoy sitting in these chairs when the weather permits, chatting and enjoying the nature around us.

          I can just hear some of your nature-loving conversation with your hubby! My own hubby and I love to admire and exhange thoughts on nature, as well! No wonder I wanted to reblog this post!

      Yes, the “winter of waiting” for the time we can sit outside and chat intimately with loved ones and friends can become chilly. So we must keep warm hearts, right? So pleased to have you join us here!

    Hi Rose! I saw this on Creativity Aroused and loved it and glad you are helping share it with as many as possible.

    I am going to start reblogging on my site. I think it is such a great way to make it as much about others as oneself.

      Diane, I think you will really enjoy reblogging sometimes! It is such an effective way to connect us together in cyberspace! I am particularly pleased you enjoyed these snowy chairs awaiting a springtime chat between friends so faithfully. This says so much about the type of connections I celebrate between our critterly friends on their journey!
