Front porch wisdom is tied with kitchen table wisdom for best places to make memories and big decisions. I have always wanted a true front porch. Not a stoop, but an outdoor living room inviting neighbors to become close friends, watching kids graduate from stroller to wiffle ball, or walking with their first love. A place to observe all kinds of people and their dogs. A place to reflect on past events and dream of the future one hopes to achieve. Front porches come with hot coffee in the morning, sweet tea in the afternoon and a glass of wine or some other libation in the evening. Whether one sits alone with a good book and a blanket, or sits among others with laughter and a paper fan, the front porch is the soul of the house. At the risk of sounding like a relic, I miss LIVE conversations. Yes, I would read Twitter or text from the porch too, but social media has highjacked plain old being social. Although I don't have a proper porch, I specifically chose a neighborhood with sidewalks because people feed my soul. I want to know my neighbors and feel part of the community. Someday, when I have that porch and the jack-o-lanterns are lit on a cool October evening, you can pause as I waive and say, "Tell your mama I said hello!"
