Resting Bench and Large Rock
Germany

I happened across this place when I was out shopping with friends one day. The bench was nice and shaded, but off from the main street. Although it was mostly used by pedestrians, cars would occasionally come through. But what caught my interest was this large stone sitting on a dais that seemed to make the bench into it’s own separate area. It seemed like an odd piece of art, and it had this strange metallic thing resting on it’s top. It made be guess that it was once some sort of fountain, but I could only guess how that would function as it had no basin for collecting water. I was so intrigued by it I later made my way back to the spot and took a panorama.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
