The Original Green Kitchen

Some people have wondered where the name came from. It's not as cool and eco-based as it seems — it was, literally, just a green kitchen.

I lived in this house, known as the Red House, with my sister from 1994 to 1997. It's an old farm house with solid wood walls and a porch that wraps around two sides. It sits at the end of an industrial neighborhood, which was good for late night musical happenings.

For awhile we lived there with another set of sisters. We all learned to swing dance and wore a hole in the paint on the wooden floor with all our one-two-rock-steps.
