Bang The Drum Slowly November 14, 2010

We attended a Drum Circle tonight . . . our first.  Attended may not be the right word, but it’s close enough.

About forty people actively participated, beating on drums to create a collective rhythm and cadence.  A few tambourines and castanets joined the unified heartbeat as it pulsed across the sands.

As the sun approached the horizon, the drum beats slowed, becoming more deliberate, before speeding up to a crescendo as the sun disappeared from view.  In its wake . . . clouds tinted by last rays and harmony on the beach.


When we attend to the moment, we attend eternity.  Bang the drum slowly.

Aah . . . that’s better!
