This blue bench is a place to rest and reflect in the garden of Randy Bolin and Tom Nelson in Oakland, California, and it was featured in an essay, My Sanctuary, that Randy wrote for the September/October 2009 issue of Fine Gardening. In the essay, Randy chronicles his fight with cancer and describes how his garden was an integral part of his healing process.
