Listen

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Franz Kafka

for a moment, I thought you had written these words, after I told you about this place :) It's a great quote. As always :)

Glad you like it.Since i know that this bench is in the balcony at your home, the quote was a direct association :)
The warmer days will come soon and you will have a perfect place to watch and listen the world unmasking itself, without leaving your home.
