As the world becomes increasingly complicated, fast, and turbulent, our ability to create Home becomes ever more important. More than buying a house and stuffing it with things bought at chain stores, Home is about creating a place that reflects our individuality, maintains a strong connection with the land and people around it, and most importantly, allows us to rediscover ourselves.
All profits from this book will be donated to the Land Trust of Virginia to help protect our lovely Virginia countryside and the sense of place there. Also see the companion book "Riding Out: A Hack in Old Loudoun"
I love "place," and it saddens me that we're quickly turning America into "no-place" with our McMansions, mini-malls, and megaplexes. My books explore the beauty, texture and intricacy of "place," whether I'm traveling to a foreign country or simply enjoying my own beautiful neighborhood in Western Loudoun, Virginia. I believe that humans are being crushed by Sprawl and its accompanying blanket of sameness; we require real places to feed our souls and make us more of who we are and were meant to be. Much more to come . . .
