Most folks know what the above acronym stands for. If not, it means Working From Home. Today is week one of my stint of WHF or working remotely. I am blessed by the Creator to have the means and ability to remain working through this pandemic . I know others are struggling to make ends meet because they are in an industry where they aren’t afforded this opportunity. My prayer is that God will act through those who lead to bring a swift end to this pause in life.
Something has occurred to me while spending so much time home alone. I have a blog site that I have allowed to go stale over the past several months, and I’ve submitted content sparsely of the past few years. So here we are today. I have speculate that many who had given up on writing and posting from their blog site will now take up the keyboard and begin to once again tap out some thoughts.
Another thought that has occurred to me lately, I have no excuse to leave my guitars in their cases. So, inspired by my bride and others close to me I have taken one of my beauties out of the case and have begun to exercise my hands and fingers on the fret-board and strumming area. I’ve started by playing some arpeggio, and some blues scales, and taken up practicing the beginnings of some easier songs I like to listen to. Some of those include:
“Make It Last” – by Montrose
“Man On The Silver Mountain” – by Rainbow
“A Tout Le Monde” – by Megadeth
“Heaven Nor Hell” – by Volbeat
Hopefully with some consistent practice I can start to build my finger calluses again. Practice make perfect, right? Well, at least, better playing skills.
Another thing I am committing to is finishing up the guitar I am building and painting. I hope to have that ready for painting before May.
If you read this. please leave a comment or some kind of acknowledgement. This will absolutely encourage me to continue posting thoughts.

This Covid-19 Stuff is crazy. Bad stuff including FEAR, potential illness, the loss of financial security… but also good things like an opportunity to reconnect with family and our own talents. Love the guitar! And so glad you’re writing again 🙂

Be encouraged. I am reading.
I am a plodding blogger as well. I’ll be watching for more posts, perched atop my wfh gear whilst staring at my dusty guitars.
Thanks for writing. Bend your energies to those good things you mentioned. No time like the present.
