How many times have we gone to a program where our child will perform? And when he finally does, do we hear or see the rest of the show? I wonder.
On my best vacation ever, I got to see my son Jason perform in his traditional drum band, in Satomi-mura, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan.
I loved all this friends, and their spirited performance, but basically, all I saw was Jason swinging those big sticks, starting a rumble in my heart that I can still hear. I don't even have to close my eyes.
Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
