8-5-16 Dream of a Spirit butterfly guiding my drumming
I was enjoying playing my childhood drum set in my childhood home’s carport. As I was, I saw what looked like a butterfly colored and shining like the sun coming into the carport, attracted to my drumming. It was mesmerizing and I just wanted to watch it. It landed on a cymbal and I was compelled to play on it. Now I had mallets and I felt compelled to roll on it. I felt a childlike joy!
Then it moved to a tom and I felt compelled to play on it. More joy! It just kept moving and I kept chasing it. We were like two children playing a “cat and mouse” chase and I started laughing more and more – I didn’t want the game to stop, I was having the best time! Also, I was absolutely amazed at the quality of the drumming – I was watching myself in awe!
