I'm a Colorado woman who loves to drum. I owe my early growth to competing in WGi with the Longmont High School Drumline. My heart and arguably my soul remains with that program to this day, where I am a battery staff member.
Alan Watts said it best when he said "dancing and music, more than any other arts, represent the nature of this world. That it is playful, that it is sport. That it may be sincere, but it is definitely not serious." May we all remember the sincerity behind our playful art form, but not get caught in the seriousness of competition. Cause Music, as Alan would say, at the end of the day it is the doing of it itself that is important.
