Late in the evening, after all the work is done, we gather on the northern porch of our Bohemian headquarters in Old Fernandina, the last of the Law of the Indies towns in the New World. Snippets of the ensuing conversations are captured with iPhones and iPads, and sometimes posted here when they succinctly encapsulate a meaningful idea.
Ken Grissom describes one of the ingredients of the culture of craft and ingenuity among the workers fabricating Mahogany Bay Village cottage components in Belize: the necessity of figuring stuff out when resources American builders take for granted aren’t available nearby.
Porch time is both a time and a place where we allow ourselves to experience the other senses (beyond sight) more fully.
