Monica and Twelve Drummers Drumming


It was December 24th  and the morning NA meeting on Venice Beach had just finished.  Monica had just received her thirty days sobriety chip. But how she was going to get through this holiday without getting high was still unclear. She decided to walk along the beach until an answer came. If it didn’t, maybe continuing to walk was the answer. Several hours and three ignored phone calls from her sister later, Monica heard the faint THUD of a drum. She couldn’t remember the last time she heard live music.  She followed the beats until she stumbled upon twelve drummers drumming all lost in the euphoric world of a free-flowing drum circle. Monica felt her hips begin to sway followed by her feet and before she knew it, she had found her answer to surviving the holidays and maybe life: just keep on moving.
