Poems and Prose pieces on the art of drumming. Drumming comes from what drummers feel in their fingers and their hands, from how they are in themselves, from how they relate to the drum before them. The drumming is already done before they drum. Once the hands and arms are raised the outcome is there - no obstacle, nothing between drummer and drum. This is the free world, the straight line direct from the heart. Drumming is earth music. It comes from we know not where. It is carried off on the wind and we don't know where it goes. This is true of drummers too, borne this way and that like flying leaves, not knowing whether the wind rides on them or they on the wind. The art of drumming is to drum from the heart without envy, without delusion, free from the entanglements of desire. The art of drumming is not to be overly concerned with technique but rather to cherish the four seasons and the sun and the wind and the cold and the rain. The poems and prose pieces in 'Drumming In The Free World' explore these basic ideas.show more
