These days find me in place where I am not as introverted. Talking to people is very pleasant, and alone time isn’t craved as much as it was before. It is also my belief that long periods inside the house are troublesome for me. After an evening performance with an appreciative audience, my mother wasn’t responding to my calls. Alas, this left me no choice but to return to my home all by my lonesome.
Thoughts of the Oreo cookie cake filled my mind as my instrument was unloaded. Perhaps there would be a good movie on Netflix. The FB messenger indicated that a friend wanted me to go to the drum circle. It had been quite some time since I attended one. As a smile crossed my made up face, beach attire was put together and out the door I went.
I nestled into the sand and gazed at the beauty of the full moon overlooking all of us. The pull of her glory simply captivated me. My father crossed my mind as if he were sitting next to me admiring the moon too. It made me smile. He probably has a new perspective of everything on earth and the universe. My friend soon arrived and we made our way to the drums. It was there that we unleashed the shimmies and the shakes; there is something ancestral about a drum that just makes you want to be a part of the rhythm.
We are all a part of different types of circles: work, friends, family, etc. This summer found my mind wandering to a circle of sisterhood hence the blog. However, I knew that a live extension of that had to occur. I wanted to have something that would be a throwback to ancient times when women were sisters and honored each other as well as themselves. I knew that I want to form a circle for women to come together.
Here I am hours before I head to the beach hoping that it will be a nice experience for all of the women involved. The plan has been set, and text messages have been received. I am looking forward to forming sisterly connections during this full moon in Aquarius.
I am so happy that this has finally manifested into reality. It was such a joy to share and connect with other women under the full moon on the beach. What a special time for us. Our journey is not always easy but together, we can learn from each other and conquer our greatest fears.
