One of the drummers from the Grateful Dead, Mickey Hart has been on a lifelong journey of exploring drums. Helena was participating in a semester long arts program in Chicago when her classwork required her to read Mickey's "Drumming At The Edge of Magic" and also hear/see a performance at The Vic of "Planet Drum." Wow! Mickey put forth the idea that millions of years ago the Big Bang happened and the beat began. One could say that everything is vibration or rhythm, so everything is music. Helena likes that. Mickey also spoke to the US Senate about rhythm as a tool for healing and health in the aging process. Read his speech at Drums for Peace & Healing.
