Life in the Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project
Meet Kerry over in the 2200 block of Washington Ave.
I loved meeting Kerry and her dog Rocky and taking their Porchtrait!
When I asked Kerry my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….
What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing?
Feeling like life is on hold. I was diagnosed with cancer last summer and spent the rest of the year undergoing treatment. I was looking forward to resuming travel and all my usual activities this spring, but now I’m in a holding pattern waiting for it to be safe.
What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?
Travel! Every year my friends and I go to Wrestlemania. We rent a big house and people come in from Japan, Canada, all over. We go to a ton of events and have a great time. It’s the highlight of the year.
What do you look forward to the most?
Going to a bookstore, taking my time, reading the blurbs on the back, chatting with employees about their recommendations.
How long have you lived in the Fairmount
About 1.5 years
Share your favorite thing about living in the Fairmount?
Taking long walks with my dog. I feel like I notice new, cool things about the houses every time, even if I’ve walked past it 100 times before. I grew up in a neighborhood which had 4 models of houses and that was it.
What is your favorite business in the Fairmount? (And why)
Shinjuku Sushi! I love sushi and it’s just as good as anything I had in Japan.
What’s been the best activity you’ve done during social distancing?
Heading out to new places to take Rocky for a walk. I like the Fort Worth Nature Center. Plus I feel compelled to get up early to beat the heat and the crowds.
What are you thankful for?
I’m thankful that I’m in a house with lots of space and a great neighborhood. I’ve previously lived in the SF Bay Area and New York City, and I can’t imagine being trapped in a tiny apartment in a city right now.

The deadline for Porchtrait requests was the end of June but I am still posting from those already taken.
I have loved every moment with my wonderful neighbors, hearing and sharing stories from the heart. I look forward to future projects that allow these sweet front porch interactions to continue.
This has been a love gift from my heart to this amazing community that we live in. For those who can, you can make a donation to the non profit that I donate my time too, Capturing Grace.
