I'm back on porches today. That is, I'm not on the porch, I'm talking about them. But you understood.
The wrap-around is one of my favorites. Big, spacious. The large overhang, that allows you to get easily around someone in a rocker. This is the kind of porch that invites rockers. Plenty of them. The swing at one end is almost a requirement.
It's the kind of porch where you hang out on a rain night. The smell of the rain and misty breezes on your cheeks. The banging of thunder, the clap of lightning doesn't scare you in.
It can be a solitary recluse or a place for sitting and visiting and catching up on things.
Have to admit this porch is a little too angular for me. I like the curved porches. More of a craftsman thing. Built by someone who wasn't just building a structure, but knew he was building a way of life for a family.
I've been thinking hard about doing a web site on porches. The best porches of New Orleans.
Been looking as I drive around, making mental notes. Driving down streets I don't usually take.
Don't know if I can take on the extra load. Doesn't have to be daily though.
Maybe I'll just muse awhile.
