From the Christian Science Monitor… “The front porch wins converts as chatting with neighbors and watching storms brings connection.” After hosting visitors on their front porch during a thunderstorm, the author quotes his friend…
“You know, we’ve lived in our house for more than 20 years and you just talked to your neighbors more in that 15 minutes than we have in the whole time we’ve lived there.”
Such is the enchantment of front porches and swings.
Read the whole piece… you’ll be glad you did.
My family’s front porch is the same way… it’s the one pictured here.
