A CHAIR: DESTINY FULFILLED


Regardless of THE LONELY HOURS it must have sat IN SHADOWS EMPTY and 
BANISHED since 1864, the CHAIR OF DESPAIR CONTEST(ed) is not LOST IN THE 
PAST. It has evolved into GRANDPA’S PRAYER CHAIR even though it was nearly 
FORGOTTEN amongst the BIRTH AND DEATH(s) of the family’s history. This is a CHAIR 
NOT FOR SIT-DOWN TYPE because it isn’t plush, comfy or frequently used. Its’ true 
DISCOVERY is seeing AN AGING PAGE of family dreams where you can 
SIT WITH MEMORIES  and be SOLACED by this CHAIR IN A SHADOWED ROOM.

To say NOTHING HAPPENED HERE only applies to events BEFORE THE SHAKERS SEAT 
was in place. THE CHAIR has become the fabric of the family mosaic, fulfilling its’ 
destiny as A MUSEUM PEACE for all who have vision and are willing to see. 

This narrative was inspired by poets’ winning titles in the “Chair in Shadowed Room” 
contest. JT
