May 19/10: Ready to Rock


May 19/10: Ready to Rock, originally uploaded by susanvg.

In the May sunshine these chairs sit waiting for an owner. I can picture them on a veranda or out on a dock looking out over a calm Laurentian Lake as someone slowly rocks to the sounds of the gentle lapping of the water on the shore. Rocking chairs elicit calmness, images of mothers rocking babies, or older folk rocking to the rhythm of their memories.

  1. I like the colourful chairs and the flag is a nice touch. Speaking of Habs and rocking, they did rock tonight. Go Habs Go!

  2. Give me an old weathered rocker - something to match my reveries.

  3. Relaxing just from the photo - but the color is energizing - so there's an added benefit! :)

  5. I love rocking chairs, too. Ours used to calm our screaming baby daughter at night years ago. Guess what these colours - blue and yellow - represent to me, though? Our neighbour, Sweden.
