Last night: drumming at Heathcote. Good times. Brought my little doumbek, but wound up playing a conga most of the night. No idea what I was doing, but fun anyway. It’s more of a class format than a free-form drum circle format, so hopefully if I keep attending I will eventually know what I’m doing. Got to play with one of the brand-new xylophones that were being unveiled. Not the little metal kind, the big wooden kind. Very pretty sound.
Cool, low-key atmosphere. I think almost everyone there was a member of the community. Children wandered in and clambered over their mothers or beat on the drums. Didn’t realize till I got in my car that it had gone on an hour longer than I had expected.
Today: Lunch with greymaiden. After work, do the exercise and meditation I missed this morning. Try to meditate in nonthreatening and unsuspicious manner, to avoid attention from police.
