As you can see, we’ve chosen to use empty benches as the theme of our website. O.K., so you may be wondering why. Simply put, empty benches represent both the past and the future. Once someone sits on a bench by themselves it is often to do one of three things: think about the past, ponder a current situation, or contemplate the future. Each bench, if it could talk, might have encountered 100’s or thousands of visitors all with very interesting thoughts.
A city bench, like the one on the right has surely seen many visitors. It is these visitors that make the bench special. Any bench, all benches and all chairs have supported interesting people.
The problem though is that empty benches can not help anyone. They have romantic appeal but unlike you and me, they just sit their collecting stories.
