Mystic - Outside Looking In

  • Posted March 16, 2011 by Roger Viewed 477 times

DREAMING OF BETTER TIMES . . .

These 3 chairs are some of the loneliest seats in my town. Even though they are inside they truely are outside, outside of the world looking in. This is the front window of 1 South, the hospital's psychiatric ward, and I have seen people sit and stare out for hours. Some patients aren't allowed outside and for them these seats are thier window into the world. I know this because I have sat in them as a visitor and a patient before. I wanted another image for this theme but after 2 nights of searching and coming up empty handed I came up with this, which I am happier with I think.

Thank you

      What a wonderful meaningful post Roger! I Like the song you chose to go with your photo......The window to the world is where many lonely people sit.....including the elderly....

      I really like your picture. It says so much about isolation as the clock ticks on.
      Liked the song, but not the video images that accompanied it. I just can't relate to that smoothness. Or maybe that is what it was trying to show???

      First of all, I have always LOVED that song. Second of all, I don't think you could have come up with a better picture than this and it is particularly meaningful for me.
      Well done Roger.
