  1. Such a great post! So many happy, colorful visuals! Your front yard is like a friendly tentacle, reaching out, attracting. And it multiplies — the more people engage there, the more are attracted. It’s always becoming. And it makes a difference. Think global; act local

    Yes, lots of us on our block think of curb appeal. But we are each in our little house forts and our front yards are mostly pass-throughs on the way in and out of our forts. Blue bench has broken the fortification idiom in such a nice way. Thank you Gayle and thank you blue bench.

  3. I love your blue bench I love the pics of friends on the blue bench I wish I were near and a shoulder for you. I started an email the other day about your mom about this time with our moms I wanted to remind you to be there, JUST BE WITH HER, trying to fix what can’t be, and railing for better more compassionate care, to be there. I feel I was so obsessed with the care, the advocacy, the fight for care and the arrangements—her wanting to be home, but in rehab to get stronger to go home—and end game was approaching which I didn’t truly grasp. I’m sorry you are at a distance from her again. Go back soon, when you can, and gather strength on the Blue bench—with the community you’ve made. Love you.
