“I feel alive!”

A drumming class at Heritage Park apartments in Anaheim. I join as the session is in full swing. Five women and a man sitting in a circle crashing out rhythm with Robin their teacher. The beat speeds to a crescendo and the group pause. “I feel alive”, exclaims the woman sitting next to me. “I’m tingling all over my body” As the session progresses stories start to emerge from out of the rhythm. They just naturally appear, unsolicited.
