From a very early age I had a romanticized view of living in a log cabin in the wilderness. I spent a lot time thinking about how I would make it comfortable and inviting. It was my way of learning how to tame the wild. When I grew up and comfortably settled in my suburban home, I read the Little House on the Prairie books to my kids. On car trips, even my husband asked me to read these books for him and the kids.
Log cabins still stimulate my imagination. This is the Eli Stilson Log Cabin on the grounds of the Ella Sharp Museum in Jackson, Michigan.
