There and Back Again – Spain

While I know this is totally off topic, and that it probably belongs under this heading in the blog called Wayward Pioneer (which is also me, just in case you missed that…) I have been doing some traveling lately.  What I have learned is that I miss my guitar...

2 June 2014 The guitars keep coming – out of the goodness of my friends and readers, and out of my head…I’m going to say there is a chance I won’t ever get away from them entirely. The contribution from Cheri in California is backstage at the...

Create Every Day

Okay, it sort of goes without saying that my days don’t really come with a handy template.  I have a million things to do, but usually a flexible enough schedule that I can chose which of them I will attempt to accomplish.  The last three days have been...

May the Fourth…

I am having a morning when I am frustrated with the limitations of art.  I want to be able to paint the smell of the choke cherry in bloom, the sound of the bees, the color of the spring garden, the feel of the sun on my back, the taste of the coffee, and the...

I Just Had To Share

  Alright.  Coming to me via Jesper in Copenhagen, fresh from The Voices of East Anglia (http://www.voicesofeastanglia.com/2014/02/voxmobile-bizarre-guitar-car.html) is this image – and while I sort of get the feeling that the article is dissing the...

Electric Blue

So, show of hands.  Who did not know that I would get back to making guitars some day?  Okay, I may have been the only one, but I was wrong.  A week ago or so I remembered that as of tomorrow I am to turn in something for a local show called “Electric...

Still Missing the Daily Grind

Greetings and good morning! I had thought that after 365 times of getting up to create a guitar and coming up with something to say with my creation that I would be so over it when it was done.  I’m not.  Curiously I miss the discussion more than the creation...

What is it about Thursday?

In a just and perfect world, this would be my driveway.  I’m not sure I want quite all of the rest of the place – a side effect of living in a 300 year old house is that I am able, with laser-like clarity, to recognize the maintenance nightmare that is a...

And the Hits Keep Coming

It is Thursday I have something to do if Spring ever arrives.  This was posted to the Face Book page “Guitar Control”.  Now I want one.  Zen, musical, all kinds of happy things.  Yes.  I will dig down and set the stones properly.  I will enhance the soil...

Some Things Cannot Be Passed By

Sunday Yes, I am aware that it is all over.  And I’m painfully aware that there are moments that I miss the daily-ness of writing and guitar-ing.  It’s only been five days but feels like an eternity.  I am adjusting to how days actually pass by, and it is...
