If you love Africa like I do, you would hear the drums too… do you hear them?
Ssshh…. Turn into the wind, let your head fall back, let the hot wind blow over your face, let it dance through your hair… close your eyes, feel the warm sun on your face – now, can you hear the drums?
Ssshh…. Listen… don’t fight to hear them, they will find you… open your mind to the possibility that they are there, their harmony will find you…. Their sound is far away, but their message is timeless, their presence never-ending, and they are there… and they beat steady, welcoming, comforting… beckoning…
Do you hear them now?
My heart has pumped to the sound of those drums every moment since I was born. Their rhythm echoes the very beating of my heart.
