As we prepare for her 4th Annual Frame Drum Intensive, Layne sent us an email.
In part it shared that she is planning to attend the Intensive as her final workshop, despite her illness. Layne will take part as much as she is able.
Tommy Brunjes, Debra Roberts and Farrunnissa Rosa will provide leadership on her behalf as needed.
Always an exemplary woman, Layne draws our attention to the Center for End of Life Transitions with whom she is planning for her Transition. See http://ceolt.wordpress.com/home-funeral-guidance
In her email Layne goes on to say:
" In thinking over the retreat that starts next week, we gave everyone the option for a full refund but decided to go ahead with those who wanted to attend, and in fact more people registered. I'm very much looking forward to seeing everyone.
... I'm really at peace, busy eating anything I want and looking back over my life with true pleasure. It has been so great to meet so many of you who love the frame drum, and it has been really amazing to see how the simple desire for wanting to learn to play the drums has unfolded in my life. One of the projects that we are taking care of now is getting When The Drummers Were Women back in print. My dvds and cds will continue to be available through my company Golden Seed Productions which will also care for and house my slide collection from the many years of my research."
Thank-you, Layne, for leading by example and for teaching us in so many way! Peace be.
