I had a couple of good experiences today. I had won a Yoghurt Maker from Kombu, the Bellingen Whole Foods Store and went to pick it up. Out the front is the bench in the photograph. A solid wooden bench. No arms. No back. Pure Bench.
I headed back down Hyde Street, and we picked up a few things in the IGA ( Independent Grocery Association) Store. I took Baby out the front and sat on the bench while Kati B came through the checkout. The street was busy. Its holiday time up here. Along came a beautiful smiling young woman. Maggie Q. Editor of BELLBOTTOM. She reached in her bag and there was my copy of Issue no 5. “ Hand delivered “ said she.
That’s what Benches are about.
