You have the ability to make me smile and be sad at the same time... neat trick!
The picture is lovely yet incombination with the title, so melancholy. They say that we all have a book within us... I think I gave up on mine years ago.
Maybe it is a book of his life he is going over and re-writting it on his heart as he sits on the bench and ponders what he's done over the years or he is thinking about a loved one he lost and they used to share that very bench? Nice capture!
