Let's continue with a great thing -drumming!! After the Drumfest, I thought, "What could be better?!" The plan was to explore Woodstock and that's where I headed! Walked around the town, bought a tie dyed shirt and spent time in the back room at Timekeeper Hand Drums (another post to come). After a healthy lunch of a falafel platter with all kinds of salads/dips, I knew it was time for the Village Green drum circle. I could hear it drawing me in! Lucky me - there was a seat on a bench (ok the concrete got a tad bit hard on the "tousch")and a conga drum waiting to be played. My drums were in the car but I didn't want to give up my place. What an amazing hour and a half I spent with people of all ages, sizes and shapes! There was drumming, dancing (I have a few videos!!) and lots of entrainment. At the begin, K.R.Johnson had us clapping our hands to understand the beat and how it was valuable to listen and drum together. Then we were off. His style was to get the group started and then take a back seat and let it happen! That he did and again, I am filled with gratitude for the spontaneous experience.
