So, I went to a drum circle today. I've never been to one before. No one told me it was participatory before I got there. Since, I have to lease whatever rhythm I happen to be able to show at any given moment, this was not the easiest couple of hours. And yes I was a dirty hippy back in the day, but I really only consumed music (and drugs), no I fully participated in the sex part thank you very much.
It (the drum circle today, not the sec back in the day) happened at a little new age kind of place called Asbury Chapel, a kind (at this time) new age place. Only middle aged and older white folks, plus one kid who was about two and who refused to drum at all (very strange).
