Log Cabin Inspiration

Original article:  Log Cabin Inspiration

As I sit comfortably in a coffee shop, sipping a cappuccino, munching an almond-flavored-biscotti and wondering why the creative juices haven't been flowing, I decided to sort through my RSS reader. The title: "A Travel Writer Comes Home" catches my attention (via World Hum). The Wall Street Journal article, written by Alexandra Alter, describes "the place" that travel author Tim Cahill finds inspiration.

A log cabin, in the wilderness of Southwest Montana is where Cahill is able to sit down, reflect and write about his travel adventures in exotic and far off places of the world. The spartan 500 square foot log cabin has the bare essentials for Cahill, the founding editor of Outside magazine and author of nine books. After travel; hiking the trails of the national forest that the cabin sits on allows Cahill to "feel good and rooted."
The article reminded me of an Artist-in-Residence program I read about a while back. The Alaska based program offers a cabin in Denali national park for visual artist to find inspiration. The spartan cabin - not unlike Cahill's - allows visual artist to focus on their works of art (or crazy in the wilds of Alaska). “The Artist-in-Residence program at Denali National Park began in 2001, and offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their work amidst the natural splendors of Denali Park.”

I better get cracking or else I'll have to find a cabin in the wilderness.
