BloGMostly daily photo updates of goings-on at the shop. Sometimes a surprise.
Settling into the new shop and the new life is taking a little more time than anticipated, but things are starting to come together. Arranging the new workbench today while listening to an outstanding @bbcradio4 production of HP Lovecraft stories.

Taking a well deserved hiatus after the big move out of Canal Park. See you next week, folks. #thanks

I’m all cleared out of Rosewood. I left only a song and took away my whole life with me. Everything is perfect, even when we don’t understand it. I’m full of gratitude and wonder, and excitement for the way ahead. See y’all around the next bend! I couldn’t have done it alone.

I wanted to explore the question, “Who am I if I’m not the guy who fixes instruments down in Canal Park?” I wanted to step closer towards participating in the other things I want out of my life. I wanted to expand. I can carry only so much, and so I set down what is no longer vital and with empty hands, free hands, I begin to ply the threads of the next weave. Maybe identities are only really useful when you realize they are not who you are, and that they change. #thanksforeverything

So sad to have to make this decision, but with the blizzard on its way tomorrow, I’m going to cancel the closing ceremony and celebration for Rosewood. It been an honor to serve y’all these past 17 years. Looking forward the keeping it up in the new life ensuing. Enjoy the snow, I know I will.

Almost 17 years in business in Dewitt Seitz, and nobody ever twigged on my reference here. Well, if you’re of a mind, go pick up some books by Charles de Lint. The Onion Girl is one of my favorites. #jillycoppercorn

Just a reminder, Rosewood Music closing ceremony and celebrations will be happening on Saturday, November 30th at 4:00 PM. Of course, this depends on the weather. We are forecasted to get a major storm that day. If so, we’ll have to connect at the heart level from wherever we are.

I have been working 12-14 hour days for the last three weeks trying to get my shop move done. That’s no complaint, but it is true. Now, I’m hanging around at the finish line with some time to spare, so I took a long, afternoon nap today and it was awesome. Thank You, body o’ mine, for stepping up and doing the work when it needed doing. Recoup now. #sleep

Love all these visitors lately coming by for one more look at the shop. Extra love when they take some stuff away with them! For the rest of y’all, planning a ceremony day at end of November to usher out! I’ll post details soon. #wakeup

Been a good run in DeWitt-Seitz. I’m so thankful that I have been able to close down this location because I have too much business rather than not enough. I feel deep gratitude for the community of musicians who have supported me all these years, and I’m thrilled to continue doing repair and restoration work in a better situation for me. What a wild ride. I was 24 years old when I turned the key to my spot in Canal Park for the first time. 41 years old in less than a month. Been directing my own course for my whole adult life! Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
