Freedom and frames
Fences and walls diminish freedom, right?
The porch of my new home (see top left) was unbounded and paradoxically it didn't feel free - it felt undefined. So I created a fence of plants, and, with my landlady's blessing, planted flowers. Boundaries, expectations, limitations can create the possibility of freedom. Having every option available can be more overwhelm than opportunity. Now the porch has purpose, and the milk crates are an infinite source of conversation with the constant passersby on this busy street.
