Hi Helen, thanks for the note. It's great to cross paths with a fellow seeker. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better; the djembe, dun, kenkeni and songba were my main drums for many years until I transitioned over to the balafon and kora. Maybe one day we'll get to sit in a drum circle together.

Peace & Blessings,

"Been there, done that" - not to worry.

Yes, I know it's playable, I was asking if YOU actually played it, as opposed to, say, David Holt: is HELEN, THE PIED PIPER OF PERCUSSION playing it? I play (at) it, myself, along w/ a number of other fun instruments.

I won't even pretend to know what other instruments you play - nor will I try to pronounce them; if you can both pronounce and play those instruments, you're "a better man than I am"! OK, maybe that's not the way to put it, but you get my drift, right? I think I may've seen some of your drums on that exotic website out in SF, CA I think - name escapes me at the moment - but I'm sure you know it.

Anyway, thanks for catching up - we'll continue this as we learn and grow, right!?

Go 'Hit' something musical/rhythmical -

Hey there Helen;

Bang the drum slowly and check out these cool pages here. Nifty discussion and good people. I hope you love it... it seems to be the best.

"From working with percussion, I branched out to storytelling, singing, and now tv/film acting. It's been quite the trip..."

OK, from percussion . . . to storytelling . . . to singing . . . to tv/film acting - 'quite the trip' is correct, if a dramatic understatement.

There's more of a story here than you're owning up to, but impressive nonetheless.

I'm returning to your page/website looking for clues to answers to my questions . . . .

Rereading my last comment from this morning, the "Really play?" looks/sounds pretty stupid, and I apologize if you were offended - I didn't mean anything by it, other than to ask if you played it.

How fun! What do you do w/ the washboard!!?? Really play?
Haven't seen a female do that in . . . maybe ever!

I'm in class, so gotta run, but I'll be back after while -

Washboard - ha! that's great -

ok, so what about bones/spoons/hambone, etc.???

Hey, Helen, Welcome!

"Percussion Lady," eh? Sounds like great fun - what instruments are involved? I do something similar (I think), but NOT as 'Percussion Lady,' as that was already taken....

I told your friend Sondra earlier today that this is an awesome site, so helpful to tellers of all sorts - and I'll just repeat myself telling you - but it's true.

It's an inspiring 'exchange place' of/for all things story-related.

I trust you'll enjoy this place as so many of us already do; I look forward to your comments and contributions to the site, and want to reiterate to you, Welcome!

The first clue I had that you'd joined this was an email from the organizer saying she'd "met" you! Wha's up?

P.S. You are member 200! We're trying to hit 250 by April 1. I think we're doing pretty well...

Hi Helen!

Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Glad you joined the site. You are so pretty. You and Sondra must make a pretty dynamic duo! You two should join the "It Take Two - Tandem Telling" group. I also use a lot of rhythm and song in my storytelling. So much fun. Hope you enjoy exploring... Happy Tales to You!
