Solving the Problem


I’m obsessing over the culvert pipes. We’re having the pipes excavated soon to address this problem, and hopefully keep it from re-occurring. When I’m not obsessing over pipe plans, I’m getting ready for this weekend. I’ll have 20 people altogether over two separate workshop days on Saturday and Sunday. The number of workshops I’m giving this year is mind-boggling, and I learn something every time and try to make the next one even better. Meanwhile, I gotta go bake brownies for 20.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
