It was cold, but we went to the beach anyway. West Coast soul on sole.
It was around 5 p.m. when we started walking up the sand, hearing something of a rapid heartbeat as we did.
We veered right, trying to find the sound source almost out of earshot.
Almost instantly, we did -
A drum circle, right in the middle of the sand.
And in its centre, people dancing.
Nothing planned, except the making of music of all kinds.
@the.stevedor and I stood outside the circle, all while taking in this rare spontaneity. But the energy here was too contagious to stand still.
We joined in. And added something to the melody as well.
Such a feeling of liberation, dancing to a rhythm made right there, surrounded by strangers thinking of nothing but right now.
A taste of freedom on the beach.
We carried on an hour later, thankful - joyful - that we had the chance to savour it as well. | February, 2015 #drumcircle #venicebeach #discernment #sanddance #westcoastsoul
