I love listening to drumming. It brings into my heart a thump that beats in time with the echoes of its sound. And if I have a chance to join in, I do so with eager anticipation of feeling the reverberation of it through my nerves that tingle with the vibration of each beat. Despite my inexperience, these drummers welcome me to share with them what can only be felt when I join them in the music of the soul. I experience the seriousness of the moment of connecting with the other drummers as well as the joy of the rhythm of each beat within my being. For in each of us flows the beat of the drum that can bring us out of our seriousness into a joyous thrill. If we stay with that joy we will be able to experience life’s wonderful opportunities and be open to more possibilities than we ever imagined.
