The Significance of Your Kitchen

When people ask me where I live, my answer is simple: I live in an airplane and a car seat. When I’m not on the road, however, my precious time is spent in a most romantic setting. I am a tree-hugging, banjo-picking, log cabin dweller.

The first room you enter when coming into my farmhouse is, as it should be, the kitchen. The kitchen is the architectural welcome chamber in abodes worldwide.  It has been this way since mankind first figured out that food and a sense of community are interchangeable and inseparable.  In the earliest of times, when people lived in caves, the kitchen was always at the the mouth of the cave.

Obviously, the first room you entered by necessity - it was the only place to set the fire so the smoke could get out. Even so, it is fitting that the kitchen should forever be the first place to set foot in when entering someone’s living space. 

I’m glad you’re here — and this is the place that says so.



My kitchen in our log cabin is the most wonderful, pleasing and lonesome room in this house. It is welcoming in a great many ways. It welcomes you with the smell of breakfast in the morning. It welcomes you with the lilting fragrance of homemade pine-nut and sunflower-seed pasta sauce simmering into its fourteenth hour on the stove. It welcomes you with sights of a large bowl of garden salad set in the center of my long wooden table.  It welcomes you with growing plants in the windowsill, bright green, living and breathing as they reflect the afternoon sun.
