Observations From Behind Bars

Marching to the Beat…

with 2 comments

Last year, the luckiest woman in Flour Bluff took an interest in playing the Bodhran (BO-rahn) a flat drum used in traditional Irish music, so I got her one for Christmas. There is a drum circle that meets at a tea room, down town, and she attended that a few times.  They had some pretty hot belly dancers there, as well, so I hung around for the ambiance.

Recently, Jill discovered  a couple of drum circles that meet in our end of town and has become involved with one  oriented toward Native American culture.  Today, she joined her group and members of the South Texas Alliance of Indigenous People in an annual ceremony to re-bless the sacred grounds around Oso Bay.    Karankawa burial sites  and evidence of their camps are  found around the bay and along Oso Creek.

Never one to attend a ceremony without her drum, she loaded it aboard her Honda Magna, and off she went.

There, now it’s motorcycle related.
