Drum Meditation

Mystic drummer Neil Peart of the band Rush has posted a recording of his drums only from an instrumental on their new album, Snakes & Arrows.

Listen to the track, close your eyes and see where the rhythm, dynamics, pauses and silence lead.

Random 8

Cyber friend Hamza Darrell Grizzell from Metro Atlanta has “tagged” me on his blog to play “Random 8.”

Here are the rules:

Players start with 8 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

So here are 8 random facts about yours truly:

1. While driving, instead of abruptly switching tracks or turning off a song that holds meaning- I slowly turn down the volume, fading the song out. Strange, I know.

2. I enjoy being a Gemini- and so do I.

3. I could easily live most anywhere, city or country, doesn’t matter to me.

4. Our family is traveling to Ireland in August- I feel deeply the trip will change our lives.

5. My idea of relaxation and adventure is to take a long drive, preferably on a road I’ve never driven before, and sample life in small towns, small crossroads. It’s almost inevitable that a song will be written (or half a song- at least) while on my adventure.

6. I find whitewater rafting or simply being on a river enlightening.

7. I recall vividly being three years old.

8. I miss Carolina Pride all beef hotdogs most on my vegetarian diet.

OK, that’s 8. And here are the 8 fellow-bloggers I hereby tag to continue this meme…
