Giving thanks.

A post on Thanksgiving?  Good time to reflect on gratitude.

I've posted about this before, so I'll keep this one short.

Next time you go to practice, be grateful you found something you enjoy doing, something that makes you happy that you *can* do.

Next time you strike a drum, be grateful for the animal, the tree/plant, and the earth that made that drum possible.  Be thankful for those who assembled it so that you could play it.

Next time you play a song or drill, be grateful for the group that made what you're doing possible.  If you're a leader of the group, be grateful for the dedication and sweat of the people that populate the group.  If you're a member of the group, be grateful for those that take care of the things you don't have to worry about, to make sure the group survives.

There's a lot of anger and fear out there right now.  Be grateful that you can bring some joy, some beauty into the world.

The more grateful you are, the more opportunity you have to make things better.  Think about it.
