The first of the month means it's Theme Day for participating City Daily Photobloggers. This month's theme is Waiting.
I often drive past this bench on Arroyo Drive. It perches high above lower Arroyo Park with scenic views of hillside trees and open sky. Sometimes it is surrounded by high school kids skipping school. At noon it serves as an alfresco lunch seat. At dusk it often hosts a romantic couple or sunset-capturing photographer. Many times I've seen someone sitting on that bench alone, staring out towards the west with a familiar blank look that indicates a big decision -- or possibly even bigger regret. But a lot of the time the bench is just empty. Waiting.
