What a beautiful day! How important is drumming? Thanks to the YMCA Drummers.

I am enjoying this blissful day. The McCrorey YMCA African Drummers were here this morning and gave us a beautiful drumming session! Drumming is not only for entertainment, but even today; there are several parts of Africa and the world, where drumming is also way to communicate.

From the African ancestors to the Aborigines in Australia; drumming has always been a favorite pastime. Anytime you need to relax, reconnect, study and share, drum! You do not have to be a perfect drummer. Just start with or without a rhythm and sooner or later, you will find your own rhythm and stick with it. It's also a great way to meet new people and make friends.

After drumming, you sleep better! If you are having a hard time sleeping at night, try drumming during the day. Drumming is very vital for our organs and our immune system, please check with your doctors before you start any extreme drumming! Lol

I found out that I am going to be in a movie! Never Stop Dreaming.

Guess what? I found out that I will be in a Movie! I have been asked to play myself and it will be shot at the store and around town locally in Charlotte, NC. Who knew that a little girl from Africa, trying to better myself by getting good education, raising my family, helping my families and others; could also be in a movie? Or, isn't life a movie or reality anyway? Except one is recorded and one is real and happens the way it is.

I am very, very, thankful for everyone who has helped directly or indirectly in my growth. It's not easy but you have made a difference. If being in a movie is any indication of what my future will be; you are responsible and I thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Revenge is a waste of time a unnecessary anyhow, let your enemies and naysayers see you in a positive light and never stoop to their level. Our Father and Creator knows what's inside of us and evil have no chance if you do not let them. I simply choose to be kind, responsible and lift others up as well.
