    Default Death of a fellow employee at work.

    Learned of the death of a fellow employee that died at work last week. Thought that we only have one life and we should enjoy it and do what makes us happy. So today I decided to do what I enjoy and makes me happy the most. That is playing drums and percussion instruments like my new Cajon . That is why I am going back to playing drums and trying to make some videos to put youtube to share my talent with others. I am also going to see if I can play with some musicians at the coffee and wine café near me. I have been learning to play my cajon from youtube and am enjoying it a lot.
    Keep drumming

    Agreed. No only is music an escape for most musicians, but it can also provide an escape for those listening. That's a sacred gift.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    I had the same thing happen about a month ago. While I'm still in school, I have a part time job to pay for university. One of the manager's didn't show up and the police were called to his home. In his early 30's he had taken his life. I also lost a close family friend to the same cause, a close classmate, who didn't have the chance to graduate, a baseball coach, and a friend who lived down the street, all within the first half of this year.

    You get yourself thinking about the little time you have left on this earth. It's hard to understand. You never know when your last moment will be. It really is depressing when people you know pass away. One day you laugh with them, the next day they're gone. It's a scary thought but it has to come at some time. So do the things you love and spend every day with the ones you love. Cheers.

    I've used my drums as an escape all my life.

    We had one of our young tellers pass away very suddenly, recently.

    Just found out an ex-branch manager, (again another young vibrant life) has been stricken with the big C. Single mom, one young son.

    Heartbreaking.

    "It's a scary thought but it has to come at some time."

    I thought about it more when the PTSD hit me than I ever did in Nam. Even when the next 10 minutes was in doubt.

    I'm probably closer to it than just about everybody on DC, so when the Grim Repo Man comes for me, I'll ask him if I have time for 1 more scotch and are we taking my car or his.
