Oh yeah! I took out the Celtic drum last night and was drumming away at midnight to welcome Beltaine. Will do so again in a few minutes to waken the sun and start the last half of the sun year. For those not familiar with drumming for peace, it is a way of connecting with God and the earth through drumming to the heatbeat of yourself and God. A truly mystical experience, especially when done with others, but it works for me while alone as well. And what better place to do it than in the garden?

I take it you don't have neighbors?

Don't get me wrong - they used to have drumming groups on the beach in Florida at sunset, and it's kinda cool...but I have visions of my neighbors here in an ancient French town accepting that one!

Drummers? Is that what that sound is? It is my anniversery (35th) and I thought that was the sound of my husbands heart going pitter-patter.

Actually I do have neighbours, but I live on a triple-sized lot so wasn't real close to their houses. Plus when I drum outside I use my fingers rather than the tipper (double drumstick). Here's a pic of a Celtic drum (bodhran):

Happy Solstice! Bodhra10

It can be played very quietly or fairly loud.

Oh, I'm well familiar with a bodhran...I painted the family crest on the one we bought from Malachy Kearns at Roundstone Music when we visited the Connemara Peninsula a few years ago...my brother-in-law is quite an accomplished bodhran player.

It's such a lovely place...not far from where my husband's ancestors were born, and so wild and desolate, yet so vibrant and alive. We've got it high on the places to return to as soon as possible.

Thanks Camprn!

It was our winter solstice yesterday (it's Tuesday here now) and the shortest day of the year.

I'm looking forward to watching the sun go down in my garden, a little bit later every day from now on.

Happy Solstice! Empty Midsummer and Yule

Post  SirTravers on 6/21/2010, 11:35 pm

Oooh yeah Happy Midsummer to the northern folks and a Happy Yule to those in the southern regions. Funny thinkin it's almost time to start with the fall crops. I'm still experimenting in my desert location. It's weird having to relearn all my gardening stuff but it's fun. Just think it's almost time for the seed catalogues to come out down there in the southern places. That's always an exciting day when the catalogues come hehe.
