Thank you for giving the drum such attention. It means a great deal to me, hard to put into words at times. I use the drum at drummings but also to go to a sacred place (now invaded by tourists) and with a very small group we drum with prayers to the ancient ones that lived here and to Creator. There has been a sad history here and we try to keep the flame alive. So that is why I made a fuss about the drum, it will be calling out in healing to wounds that have never healed.
