A stillroom was a designated work room for the once complicated work of food preservation: pickling, drying of herbs, potting of meats, distilling, manufacture of sweetmeats, and so forth. Ms. Fifield’s take on the stillroom is to pull into this space a variety of tales. There’s a bit of pun in the title The Still Room, delineating a quiet space brimming with the ingredients of memory, where consideration, analysis and wordcraft can take place. The earthenware jars in Ms. Fifield’s Still Room are labeled many a varied thing. The blog posts sprout from Ms. Fifield’s interests, including museums, historic preservation, transit, communities, social and women’s history, food, current events, geneaology, travel, roadtrips, and considerations on general sense of place.
