Michael's Chronicle: Bonita I


Michael Thiele is a woodsmith who makes musical instruments and playable furniture. He spends most of his life either in the shop or out on the road buying wood and selling his work at craft shows. In recent years, his travels have begun to inspire his own writing, so he sends me his thoughts.

Bonita I

They refer to the three shows as Bonita I, II and III. Today is the start of One (I’ll just ditch the Roman numeral). Pretty stout wind this morning. Refreshing, truth be told. It’s blowing away the humidity. Don’t need that. I grew up in the desert. Enough said. Desert, got it? We don’t mind sweating. Not at all. But we do have standards. One’s sweat should not sweat. Sweat squared is wrong. If one is caught with humidity on one’s property where I come from, he will be ticketed on first offense - maybe jailed for a day the second time around. He’ll get the picture.

Anyway, first event of the year. Gotta start somewhere. First quarter shows are all here in Florida - the place to where winter refugees from other parts of the country flee as the weather deteriorates. Snowbirds. I’ve been doing shows here since the mid-80’s. Beats shoveling the white stuff in Flagstaff, the home of my studio. I’ll fly back after the show, work all week, and return for next weekend. Till later……..
