    I've never seen a drum circle or a laughing group therapy session other than in movies. I think these people must just watch too much TV.

    At one point in time I smoked often and never once had an urge to start or join a drum circle.

    Several years ago, a developer was seeking a rezone in our small town of 1,000 (inside of Iowa City, called University Heights). We didn't have much commercial business in town, but could go a few blocks outside of town to find whatever we needed in Iowa City. One reason for the development was that it could provide a space for the public to congregate. One woman almost killed the deal by saying that her husband and his drum circle friends would really like having a space to play every week or whenever. Oh yeah! Good idea! How about a Municipal Drum Circle, maybe with uniforms.

    Her husband has held a job for the 20 years we've had them as neighbors across the street. But he sures seems to put a lot of time into stupid, non-productive activities. In particular, he loves his Halloweens, and goes all out every year. During the city council meetings, his wife kept up the drum circle idea, and told a tale of woe of having to travel 5-6 blocks to get coffee. Whoa, what a hardship! For these reasons, she wanted to rezone a church property for a proposed strip mall and condo development. It was a contentious battle that went on for a few years. During that time the wife would write letters to the newspaper, under a pseudonym of Goethe (her dissertation topic), criticising the "silverbacks" who resisted change.

    A few years ago I posted about a neighbor's house seeming to be painted pink one weekend. Argh, we panicked. This was "Goethe's" house. Ultimately, we learned that the pink was primer, and now we have a nice chocolate brown house. In addition to that stupid development. No drum circles materialized, and no coffee shops either. The husband's drum circle continues its adventures in downtown Iowa City, in Stoner Square (I kid). But you never know. Maybe if she gets her coffee shop, the drum circle buddies might congregate?

    Good times.

    I went through a lot of drumsticks in the warmer months back then. Joining a drum circle would have been too tiring. I didn't own any boho rugs to wear to the sessions anyway.:)
