A Sad Day (Every day is a sad day for someone somewhere)

I saw this couch here set up cutely right next to this thrown out Christmas tree and it looked nice, and being someone who thrives outside, I thought, wouldn't it be nice if people actually sat here? And there were couches like this set up all over where people could come and sit-

When they needed a break from life, needed to sit down and take a load off and share their emotions. If someone was feeling sad this person could sit down and have someone to talk to. Strangers hardly ever chat unless it's a must (sitting next to someone on an airplane), which seems downright ridiculous. Loneliness is a hard thing too, and I think many people feel very alone. Really everyone knows what it's like to be sad, or angry, or every other emotion. I know I'm an optimist, but it seems rather silly that people don't talk more, share experiences, and provide comfort for one another-often comfort is found just in simply having someone to talk to.

Very cool picture, and nice reflection.

Social Media gives us the choice to set up the digital equivalent of couches in the street. :)
