This throne of a seat looks like it was unpeeled to reveal singer/songwriter, Ari Lennox. She can’t be bought, regrettably, but two of these chairs in tour backyard amid bamboo, banana trees, palms and philodendron might mimic the getaway that is her voice. Fit for shiraz on Saturday night or chai on Sunday morning, this chair is for conversation, reflection, gratitude.

You often hear about the chair in this journal.
I say ‘chair’ but I speak of every object in the room.
I speak of the table,
I speak of the bed
I speak of books
I speak of you.

When you see or hear about the chair,
allow it to take on the shape of any object you’re ready to start dialogue with.

Above: I spotted this arrangement uptown. The cane webbing caught my eye. I drew closer and found that the chair had sustained some injuries over time. Still (with slight adaptations), it functions.

“Designs don’t have to be perfect: results that are not quite optimum or less than perfect are often completely satisfactory for everyday usage. No everyday product is perfect, nor need they be.”

Above: I got to know myself well in this swing. It sits inside a special park in Tallahassee. This is about the time I first began to notice the natural world as mirror to the things happening in me.
