Porch Sitting

Porch Sitting

Rebecca and I love sitting on a covered porch on a hot summer evening. This picture was taken on the porch of a tiny house built by Rebecca’s parents to provide shelter when their home is overflowing with visitors. The porch is nearly as big as the house.

I have fond memories from my childhood of porch sitting with the old folks. They talked about life and I listened. It was during these times that they gently shaped me into the man I have become.

We enjoy walking through older neighborhoods filled with southern mansions built with big covered porches. These days they build homes without them. Our next house will have a big wraparound porch that we can sit on and watch thunderstorms roll in from the West.

What is your fondest memory of a covered porch?

Peace out,
Robert & Rebecca

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
