Drumming in the cooler weather

The weather turned a little cooler this week with the tropical storm coming. This crisper weather made us feel the call of the drums. The kids did what they do best – were themselves. Someone made noise by bounced on a playground tire; someone else tapped on a tree with a bamboo stalk; someone shook palm fronds; a puppy howled along with the beat of the drums; some kids made their own drums since there weren’t enough of the others to go around; someone spun a bamboo stalk to make whooshing noises. All this came together to create harmony. The kids felt like it just seemed to fit.
