Kitchens Can Be Sacred Too

Yea thats right, kitchens can be sacred too... and mine is. It may be unfinished with studs exposed, cabinets unhung and an exposed plywood subfloor. But thats all right, because I know its value. I know what it is bringing to me now and what it will bring to me later. I absolutely love my kitchen...and that is why it will be completed soon. I have chosen to charish and care for it. I will build it with devotion, love, tenderness, laughter and comraderie.

My kitchen is a sacred journey into patience, reflection, knowing what is important and grace. It teaches me what I long for... a home that is inviting, real, functional, grounded. A place to eat healthy meals, read, write, do homework, have great conversations with my honey, with family and with my cherished friends. It teaches me that I am ready for a real home of my own, rich in exprience and life. It teaches me that I am ready to move inward toward myself so that I am able to move outward toward others with love, compassion and deep presence. WOW what a GREAT KITCHEN!!!
