"In the Grain” has a new home! While on the subject of homes, a man’s (or woman’s) home is his castle, a sacred abode radiating and replenishing lost energy.

The center of the home has always been the hearth, a stone or cast-iron fireplace/oven, the hub of energy and industry for heating the house and cooking the family food. The Latin word for hearth is focus, the focal point of the home.
