About Pike’s Porch

I’ve always wanted a front porch. I think of it as a place to sit and relax, read a book, wave to neighbors, and have nice chats with people who stop by.

So I’m hoping you’ll stop by and have a chat with me. I understand this feels a bit one-sided since I’m the one chatting. But I’d love it if you’d take the time to react (click the heart at the bottom) or leave a comment.

Send me an email, tag me in a note, and recommend other writers for me to read. I sure as hell haven’t stopped learning!

Crack open a beer and pull up a chair. Let’s enjoy the sunshine and nice breeze while there aren’t any mosquitos out. (See? I’m dreaming!)

I write articles and poetry on topics close to my heart. Some have been shared on Medium before; some are fresh on Substack.
