Party of One
Texture Tuesday Theme: Story
Out back, the wrought-iron table and chair sit patiently. Frosted with snow, metal icy to the touch, they wait.
A table for one. A tale of solitude; of quiet moments in contemplation.
She surveys the scene – the chair, the table, the window. All thoughtfully arranged as if props on a stage.
Extending an open invitation: come sit, be still, slow down. Alone but not lonely.
She smiles. Grateful to be here; to play her role in this story. Both observer and participant.
To enjoy this tableau and make it her own.
A party of one.
