The effects of the weather and time can be harsh and unkind, very often resulting in wear & tear damage. Teak outdoor furniture is one of those exceptions, where exposure to the elements lovingly renders each piece majestically beautiful. Teak naturally contains silica, which makes it resistant to fungal infestations and the effects of water; hence, they can be appreciated with minimal upkeep.
They are an analogy for how I want to live on this other side of 50: I may be weathered, but I certainly am not worn.
