The Kitchen Window

'One day a man decided to board himself up inside his house.

He sealed off the doors, the windows, even the chimney. He left only one opening-the kitchen window-through which anyone wished to speak to him was forced to speak. Fortunately, there were people that still wished to speak to him, so they called on the man at his kitchen window.

Over the years this fellow came to the conclusion that the world was such a place in which people only speak to one another through kitchen windows. He wrote a book in which he argued that human discourse cannot and does not take place in any other way than through kitchen windows.

The Kitchen Window School was founded shortly after his death'

Reading the book will help it make more sense!Granted it is a bit abstract out of context.
