Drumming out the blues


Spent 3 hours doing a 5 mile anti-war march with Barking Batteria and Rythms of resistance from Trafalagar square over the river to finish at Westminster. I played a large heavy surdo, which is a real physical effort but the vibe of playing with 60 drummers is amazing. I delve into my inner boudicca...and thump that thing for all i'm worth.
We shook our fists at Parliament. Wierd creatures crawled on the ground. Brian Haw peeked out from his tent. Impromptu parties throbbed...
FIT didn't call my name (http://www.fitwatch.blogspot.com/), which they have in the past, I'm just an ordinary peace demonstrator...
