My drum arrived in perfect timing for the New Moon
Russell from Southern Spirit Drums made my drum
It was rather fun as every step of the way he emailed me photos of his progress
The hoop, goat skin and laces prior to putting it all together.
I appreciated Russell's friendly emails and photos of his progress.
"Over the next few days I will be finishing the hoop and preparing the goat skin for the drum head and laces. Currently the goat hide is being stretched in readiness for this. There after, the skin is shaped for the drum head and the laces for stringing the drum are made ready.
Having grown up with Toggenburgs and weaned on goats milk as a child, plus as a Capricorn, it's probably not surprising to you that one of my spirit guides is the wonderful goat! :))"
Myself also being a Capricorn and a lover of goats no wonder I chose goat hide and Russell to craft my drum. .
The completed drum drying out.
Finally dried and ready to play.
We will have a drumming circle at our place soon with a bonfire.
It won't be as private with all the pine trees gone but it won't take long for the natives to grow.
Farm Stay Guests...
Jack doing his headstands.
Jack having a little dance (this photo was taken with the movement control set on camera)
Jack talking - I'm gonna miss our conversations when he goes home.
Ahh Jack stood still for one moment.
Rosa wouldn't come and and see me so I poked camera through the cat flap to get this shot.
She has stunning Amber eyes - they are from her father Lordy
Like really why would she come out and see me when she had the best possy and sitting on a nice warm hottie.
