The Blue Bench

A book that illustrates the trace of time from a bench's perspective, which plays the role of witness to second chances and various love stories, through an almost movie-like perspective.

Summary

A delightful picture book about love, the passing of time and new beginnings. Connects with mindfulness - the art of observing in a fully conscious manner what is around us. 

Across the seasons; across the years; across generations - the blue bench in the park has been a silent witness to it all. A poignant story that centres around a blue park bench: people fall in love, friendships formed, others say goodbye. The only thing that remains constant is the blue bench.

This book speaks to us about the cycles of life and the wonder of finding out that we can always go back and start again.
