Every year, Indianapolis sponsors a celebration of Earth Day on the Saturday closest to the actual day. Held downtown, it's a fun day of finding out ways to help out the planet. My youngest son plays in a drum group that has performed at the Earth Day celebration for three years running. I love listening to them play there, especially because they get to play with Village Drums, the local adult group who can really rock a beat. If you've never been to hear a drum circle perform, try it. It's amazing.
Highlights of the day (besides the actual performance) were:
- Hubby seeing a guy with the longest dreadlocks I'd ever seen -- and I've been around the block a time or two. He kept swearing that the guy was George Clinton, which was a definite possibility, since he lives here locally and
- the moment when the guy next to me rolled off his chair and did a face plant right onto my foot. Rather shocked me, but he seemed nonplussed when I rolled him over and asked if he was ok. "Oh yeah," he said, "I have arthritis." I never did quite understand that, but he didn't seem shook up about it, so we hung around for a while to make sure he was fine, then moved along.
