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!

  • Supper on the Fly
    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›

    Last minute choice! Salmon and chopped egg with garlic scapes and chives, piled on slices of crispy light and dark rye toast slathered with melted butter!! Yum yum. For the salmon spread mix together: 1 diced garlic scape with 1…Read more ›
  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
