Front Porch: Take that Rail Off

"Take the rail off", I said.  Friend, not client, we knew the obstacle, husband.  Years passed. Now, below.    Understand intuitively who took the rail off & built the new step?

Ahead of the curve, they sold their lakeside mcmansion, and moved here, her childhood 2B/1 bath cottage.  When it's full of their 5 children, 15 grandchildren, & friends (lucky me) the house does not feel small, only unlimited horizons of love & joy.
"Will you ever bring a better gift for the world
than the breathing respect that you carry
wherever you go right now?"  William Stafford.  Gifting this lovely quote to my dear friend who lives in the cottage, above.  

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

People matter. Connections with people is what life is about. You have everything when you have friends and family to spend time with and to continually reconnect with. You are blessed.

Great advice. Cast convention aside and open up the porch to the world ... we both know that a handrail cuts exactly across the sight-line when one is seated ... boo!
