Choosing my Drum

HI, I AM SORRY THAT WHEN I WAS IN YOUR STORE YOU WERE ILL AND I WAS UNABLE TO MEET YOU IN PERSON. MY NAME IS DODIE AND I AM IN THE NEW MOON CIRCLE FROM TILLAMOOK. I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT WHEN I CAME INTO THE STORE I WAS GREETED BY A REALLY NICE LADY SORRY I DON’T REMEMBER HER NAME AND SHE ASKED ME ” SO I HEAR YOUR LOOKING TO GET A DRUM DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF DRUM?” I STATED “I AM WIDE OPEN”. SHE SAID THAT SHE LIKED THAT AND TOOK ME TO THE RACK OF DRUMS, TOLD ME TO HOLD THEM AND GO THROUGH THEM BEAT ON THEM AND THE DRUM WOULD PICK ME. THE FIRST DRUM THAT I PICKED UP WAS A “HORSE” DRUM. I LOOKED AT IT AND SET IT BACK IN THE RACK OF DRUMS.

I LOOKED AT OTHER DRUMS AND THE FIRST DRUM THAT I PICKED UP WAS THE DRUM THAT I LEFT YOUR STORE WITH. I WAS HOLDING IT CLOSE TO ME AND SHE SAID “I LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE HUG THEIR DRUMS IT WILL KEEP THE DRUM HAPPY” I REALLY DID NOT REALIZE THAT I WAS CLUTCHING THE DRUM TO MY CHEST.

ANYWAY I WENT TO A NEW MOON CIRCLE MEETING AND NOW I HAVE HAD MY DRUM ABOUT 2 WEEKS. I WAS LOOKING INSIDE MY DRUM AND THE DATE WAS NOVEMBER 15, 2010. …… I WAS NOT SHOCKED BUT REALLY EXCITED AND FELT THAT I NEEDED TO TELL YOU AS I AM NOT SURE WHO BUILT MY DRUM OR ANY PART OF HOW IT WAS MADE OR WHO’S HAND’S TOUCHED IT,  BUT ON THAT DAY IN NOVEMBER TWO DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY I MIGHT ADD, I WAS REALLY ASKING AND SEEKING WHAT WAS GOING ON IN MY LIFE.. I WANTED TO BE BALANCED AND FOCUS… ON THAT VERY DAY SOMEONE SIGNED THAT DRUM AND DATED IT FOR ME.. ALL FOR ME.. I SHARE THAT WITH YOU AS I HAVE NEVER DRUMMED BEFORE THIS  YEAR 2011 EVER.

I REALLY ENJOY IT SO MUCH AND I WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR WORK AND CRAFT IS SO HEALING AND REALLY HAS BROUGHT WHAT I ASKED FOR THE DAY THE DRUM WAS SIGNED…THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU DO AND PLEASE LET YOUR STAFF KNOW “THEY ARE THE BEST”. THANKS AGAIN..

DODIE
