A Table For One
There are two balconies for the condo which we have rented in Thailand. The main balcony has become our dining room and Internet room. The second balcony faces west, faces away from the condo and villa community overlooking a bit of a garden and, in the distance, a fresh water body of water that looks more like a swamp than a lake. Below the balcony in the small area between the condo and the wall that serves as a barrier, is this tree with an old plastic table and chair which are stained with their relative age. Curiously, there is only one chair for this table which is set among the roots of a large tree. It is as though the tree has set a place for a human as an invitation to be present and perhaps converse.
I meditate on the little west-side balcony which looks down on this table and chair set among the roots.
