This past week has been a breathtaking whirl of new friends and places.
One site has a 98 year old gentleman who played drums with Louis Armstrong at the age of 17 and toured the world. Another site has a concertina player who shared his insight that “rhythm is the basis of everything in the world”.
Shades of Pythagorus~~~!
Several sites have many strong dancers, including new friends from Ethiopia and Somalia. I’m pleased to report that this business of being a cultural catalyst is a two-way street and the changers will be stepping lively to keep in time with the changed. The culture itself is on the move, integrating both neurological and global hemispheres and synthesizing a greater whole out of the honored individual parts.
