In My Solitude

In My Solitude, originally uploaded by Michael Mitchener.

In my solitude
I have seen things very clearly
that were not true.

Antonio Machado (Proverbs and Songs)

Spotted in Woodbine Park near Coxwell and Lakeshore. The fact that this bench is wedged into a garden of ornamental grass has always caught my eye. Possibly it's a mistake and somebody put the bench too close to the garden or maybe it was done on purpose so you can sit on the bench surrounded by tall grass and ponder the meaning of life. I like to think it's the latter.
