Typing al fresco

My contribution to the typosphere’s visions of writing spaces: I hung out on the porch today and answered some letters with my Facit TP1.

    …Can I borrow your space for like, a week? That is a beautiful view!

    Thanks! What isn't evident is that the street is a busy one where something always seems to go wrong. The latest thing is a sinkhole that opened up; the city has covered it with a steel plate which goes "gaWONgk" every time a car runs over it.

    So this isn't a perfect space — but I enjoy it anyway!

    Thanks for posting the picture. It reminds me of the porch on the house where I grew up. I loved to sit there on rainy days to read. Wonderful memories.

    Lovely spot!

    And as for the sinkhole, I have one about 500 meters from my house just like that, and I know exactly what that sound is.

    I'm starting to really find the short/coffee table height with a chair to be a very comfortable typing height myself. And what a lovely way to use your Facit!

    I envy you. Sure is an inviting porch. The one part of a house I miss is a nice porch.

    Sinkhole!? now that sounds like Florida, except here they swallow the entire house.

    Very nice and (seemingly) quiet spot. Stinks about the pothole, but it really looks like a lovely view. For a moment, I thought the top of the Facit case was some neat removable vinyl backing you had for one of the chairs.

    I call dibs on housesitting duties next time he's out of town.

    What a beautiful porch. I miss real porches. Out here in So Cal, new houses are all cookie-cutter track homes (including mine), and they're build on concrete foundations, not elevated, so there are almost no real step-up porches any longer. And even when they are built with some kind of of porch, they're cramped little spaces; nothing like what you have there. But I grew up around my grandparent's older home, where my mom's rather large family (she's #9 out of 17 kids) would gather every Sunday, and we'd all be hanging out on the porch and lawn.

    Nowadays, if you want a porch like that, you have to move into an older neighborhood. There are plenty of them still around, but you never see them in newer developments. It's too bad, because I think a porch like that is wonderful part of home life.

    Great Pic!

    It looks like a very peaceful place – but still affording a view of what is going on around-and-about.
