Day 4 of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and the letter D

I give thanks for Drums.

 Drums keep time and remind us that everything has a time and timing.  Just as drummers in a marching band are the pulse of a parade or event, the drum we hear inside is our pulse – helping us keep time with ourselves, and the world around us.   Drums also inspire us to act.     Thanks for drums!

Here’s Hungarian Horvath Kornel.  Kornel taught himself how to play percussion.  As a result he is now world-famous for his ‘wrong’ technique, which worked just fine for him, and works so well that others now want to learn it. So drums also teach us that it’s okay to be different and sometimes it’s brilliant to be wrong!

Life is an amazing journey. http://www.alisonamazed.wordpress.com http://www.alisonboston.wordpress.com

  • Vegetarian Tourtiere
      Vegetarian Tourtiere What!? There’s no such thing! You can’t have tourtiere without minced meat. YES YOU CAN! I made it purely by accident, as with most amazing things, and it stands up to taste-testing by meat-eaters. Thing is, not…Read more ›
  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
