Most of the properties along the river have pretty blunt “private property” signs along the riverbank. These are probably posted strictly for insurance purposes, because I’ve never seen anyone chasing people away from the banks in my fourteen years here in Palmyra.
One property, however, takes a slightly different route. They have a comfy bench, perfectly angled to watch the Sun set over the river, and on the back is a simple, “Reserved For Owner At SUNSET.”
It’s a bit of a throwback to an older world. It says, “This is my space, and there are times when I’ll need to be my space. But other than that here’s a comfy bench on which to watch the world go by.”
I like the world it depicts.
