Playing catch-up with the garden
I think Hipparchia is quite right; what I have misleading labelled a "recliner" (my mother's locally famous recliner) is The Barcalounger, the fons et origo of pontification.
Seriously, however, or unseriously, I think it's an important and legitimate goal simply to sit in one's garden -- especially at the height of the season -- and listen, breathe, watch... It's a peaceful, calming, and happy experience. So many layers of life!
