SPC Environment #3

I spend a lot of time in my house. We live in the country in a small township, and going to town is always for a reason or an excursion... For that reason I would say that most of my "entries" into these self portrait challenges of late have been in and around my house. My favorite spot right now is the back porch. It's a "three season" porch, so we are taking advantage of the summer season in full force out there. I managed to squeeze an old couch I bought for a dollar at the local annual auction in there...and a card table...and a little TV....and many plants...and, and, and.... We eat a lot of our meals out there right now, take naps, R. tends to fall asleep out there at night. It's kind of like camping....insects and birds chirping away. Warm and cool breezes floating through. Very peaceful. We are in love with our new house and visiting it's many incarnations as the season's change for us for the very first time here. I wish I could have everyone over for tea.

Cool shot. I like the square-ish crop and the graininess.

This picture truly captures the essence of our 3 season porch. It really is my favorite room right now.

I am envious of your porch. Beautiful post, thanks.

I actually wrote that post because I had just been out-of-the-blue cut off by someone I considered (and consider) very dear. No explanation, really. It was and is so sad; I can see how you are still hurt after years have gone by. I think if a friendship is done right, you've really invested a piece of your soul in it...so, it feels like a tiny piece of your soul was cut out. I'm still so sad, but would do it again. I've never really been truly hurt by a friend b/c for so long I was too emotionally distant to be "out there." This is more alive, I believe. Harder. Easier. All at once.

Your honesty in everything is a giant breath of fresh air. Thank you for that. And not to insinuate that you were soliciting it, b/c I know you weren't, but I'm truly sorry about the coffee shop. More sorry now than I was then. Although I really was sorry then, somehow I'm more so now. And yes, Namaste.
