"It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey...
And we pray, not for new earth or heaven, but to be quiet in heart, and in eye clear. What we need is here." ~ Wendell Berry

Other Writing


I have been a part-time freelance writer for over twenty years, contributing design-related articles and personal essays to such publications as VictoriaEarly HomesColonial HomesYankee and Old-House Interiors. I have also contributed to regional magazines and local newspapers.

In 2007 I wrote The Pantry––Its History and Modern Uses, published by Gibbs Smith. Signed copies are available exclusively through my website [for personal or retail/wholesale purposes]. It is the first, and still only, book on the domestic history and design of pantries in the American home.
