Have a Seat

Old empty chairs are not empty in reality; memories always sit there!
~Mehmet Murat ildan

Not sure I could sit in the Big-Eared Chair, but I think I could enjoy John Gay's Chair (as long as I didn't set fire to anything!).

Poets' Chair
The inscription on the front of the chair is a poem by Seamus Heaney which includes the line, "When you sat ... in the basalt throne"...On the back of the chair is a list of artists and poets who have visited Rathlin, with room for many more.

(John) Gay's Chair
Under the arms of the Chair are drawers, with the necessary implements for writing; each drawer turns on a pivot, and has attached to it a brass candlestick."

These are such fun. I wonder if the big-eared chair would listen to me?

Stone chair looks pretty comfy!

I like John Jay's chair, too...with the wheelchair for outside writing. :-)

Now if the Big-Eared Chair had stereo speakers in each ear....

These are great! I bet you could find many, many more. I confess I want to try the stone chair. It looks oddly comfortable.
