Armchair Story

We all will be eventually become orphans, sooner or later. And our children will be orphans. But in between we prepare ourselves comfortable. A beautiful armchair is one goal of them. He also will become orphaned. If an armchair could tell his stories!

  4. Your words reminded me of a conversation I overheard between my mom and my dad the day my grandmother (dad’s mom) died, “Now we are both orphans” were my mom’s words, her mom had passed away a year before… Furniture, old matresses, old tvs left on thhe side of the road always make me think about a saying TODO POR SERVIR SE ACABA, which roughly translates to: everything gets worn out from serving others… Sigh!!

  5. I’ve always felt like an orphan although my mother is alive. How odd that the chair is abandoned beside the road, it looks a comfy chair.

    I want a cuddly teddy bear and a comfy armchair by the fireplace. I’m still a kid at heart. I love the photo – poor, cold armchair.
