Inspire Me Mondays—Owlfan, The Drum
Do any of you birth drums? This is Owlfan, a drum I birthed last year, a drum with a vibrant, bass voice. When I took him from his cover this morning, I discovered a piece of twisted rawhide had separated from the Elk skin. It has been several weeks since I've played Owlfan. The care and feeding of drums is important. Once we birth them, it's our responsibility to nurture them so they, in turn, can do their job. Owlfan is a healing drum, a drum used in prayer. I don't know if I can repair him. Do any of you know? I can always birth another drum, but Owlfan was my first...(sigh). Despite his inability to speak today, he's a gentle reminder that we're each here for a purpose and if we aren't allowed to fulfill this purpose, we lose our power. Attend to your purpose and have a beautiful day.
