History

26th April 2002

7:37am: Beat it!
It's only 7:25 a.m. and already I'm quivering with excitement!

Today marks the kick off of the 10th annual Seattle

WORLD RHYTHM FESTIVAL !!!!! ~at Seattle Center.

Today is mostly kid's programs but tonight there will be a HELLA drum jam to kick it off for us BIG kids. Then all day/eve Saturday & Sunday will be free drum and dance workshops and a 48 hour drum jam. (Ok, it stops briefly in the wee hours - best time to catch it is late afternoon, early eve)

I will be playing drums for Fatimah's African dance class Saturday morning. (Come!)
Then for Sarah Lee Parker's One World dance class at 1 pm. (Come!)
Then for Sawe's African dance class at 2:30. (Y'bettah come!)

I'll be the lioness with dreads beating on drums and having magnificent Orgasms.

Again, these classes are FREE. Did I mention they're FREE!!???

Here's all the info

My legs won't stop bouncing !!!

*pants*
6:53pm: A gift for you....
There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Sit down in this circle.

Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd's love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Don't accept consolations.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lovers mouth in yours.

You moan,"She left me." "He left me."
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.
