I just returned from an impromptu trip to the Pacific Islands. It is so beautiful out there. The oceans vastness eased my soul. Put things in perspective. Time, thought and space coalesced into a gliding totality. Shifting silently through the great expanse, every single worldly ambition and fretful desire oozed out of my big toe :) There was some time to think and write ...when I managed to drag myself away from staring into the vast blue. For now here is a photo. There are more on my flikr site.

I have just been updating my drumming blog. It has some information on the nature of my Rhythm and Drumming Program. Here is a snippet.
Rhythm and Drumming : An introduction to World Drum Circles
A rhythm and drumming program which uses rhythm, movement, percussion, vocals and drums to explore the wonder of playing music in a group.
An engaging and fun introduction to World Beat Drumming. The program explores how to communicate through rhythm using drums, bodies and voices. Inspired by the world drum traditions including from the Middle East, Africa, India and Latin America this program taps into a cross cultural meeting point fantastic for the diversity of contemporary Australia.
