The Bench

Community can come in all shapes and sizes. For some, it’s family centric, gathering at a grandparent's home. Aunts, uncles, and cousins, laughing, playing games and sharing stories. For others, life can be a little lonelier.   A simple meeting place can become something more meaningful. A bench can be more than just a place to rest your feet. It can become a place to sit with strangers and friends alike, and swap stories of good times and bad. A place to connect with others even if no long term connection is made. Or a place to just sit and wonder about whatever is on your mind.

In a world that seems more connected than ever, small personal groups seems to be disappearing. This is a story about an unexpected place that became something more.....And then it wasn't.
