A Drummer Obsessed
Today I woke up and reached for a drum. I always have an hour between thyroid meds and breakfast. I used to reach for my phone and numb myself with world news and online games. I used to wake myself up just to put myself back to sleep. Now I drum. I drum myself awake. Before my feet hit the floor I have already had a productive hour. My mind is engaged My synapses are snapping. My heart is happy.
Today I woke up and drummed. The rest of the day was icing on the cake.
