Welcome to Week 3 of the Front Porch Revolution

This week we are moving on a little and talking about the front porch as a liminal space between inside and outside. One where we are sheltered, but can also feel, smell and see the elements of nature.

I have been working on my front porch a lot since starting this project and it is really quite amazing what I have experienced. I seem to have more stamina as well as a better ability to pace myself and take breaks more often. When I am huddled up in my office I can sometimes go hours without a break whereas outside the elements call to me. Maybe it gets too hot, or cold, or maybe I need to adjust the curtains to let more (or less) light in.

What if connecting to the elements is more than just symbolic?

What if being in nature even for just a little while is invigorating, grounding and settling. What if getting out to the front porch during times of overwhelm could not just help you calm down, but get a grip on the too-many-things running around in your head and know exactly which on to get started on and which to leave for later?

Ya, wouldn’t that be great!
