Savoring the Moment

Hours spent in preparation for 15 minutes of performance. It’s all for this,
The clicks begin on the head of the snare. As one, we move our feet together. We round the corner, and an explosion occurs. The crowd bursts into applause.
My spirit leaps as I take it all in. The mind is focused. My fingers at the ready.
The drum major raises her hands. Swift and precise movements.. 1.. 2.. 1, 2, ready go..
It starts. It’s all like clock work now. I pour my heart and soul into my sound, my fingers, my feet.
It’s what I live for. It’s what makes it all worth while. It’s an expression of me. It’s my dreams unfolding before me.
