ALISO BEACH DRUM CIRCLE STORY
I am not sure exactly how she found the Aliso Beach Website as opposed to La Vida Laguna but we were happy to pass along a schedule of the drum circle events to Sharon who requested help finding it through our website. When we put up the Aliso Beach website we envisioned helping people enjoy Aliso Beach and the greater community of Laguna Beach. Aliso Beach and all of Laguna Beach are truly a gift and places worth visiting no matter how far you come to make the stop.
Sharon was the name of the gal who stopped by the website and requested help with the schedule. She was cordial and I was compelled to help her. I only knew that the Aliso Beach Drum Circle was scheduled for the full moon night of every month. Embarrassingly enough, I have yet to make one of the events even though I love drumming events. I was able to find a schedule on the La Vida Laguna website and was happy to pass that along to Sharon. She was thankful and had an interesting reason for wanting to locate the schedule. As she briefly told her story, she was hoping to honor her late husband by attending all of the monthly drum circle events in Laguna Beach, California. I thought to myself what an amazing tribute that would be to a lost loved one and was happy to be a part of making that happen.
I have to imagine Sharon is a genuine and loving soul. I do appreciate her reaching out to us because I am always happy to help when I can and as I indicated previously, I felt like she was someone that I was meant to help. There is a story in greater detail to tell I am sure. Sharon does not know it yet but I am going to reach back out to her to see if I can interview her. Losing a loved one and then setting a course of action to make every drum circle event in the honor of her fallen lover is a real and compelling human interest story.
I know it is easy to walk out the door every morning and become so disconnected to other people and things that matter to us all. Sharon’ s story, although I have no detail, is valuable to us. It emanates love and devotion, and the desire to honor a person that was dear to her. Her reason for searching for the drum circle schedule tugged at my heart. I am busy like everyone else, but I would not have let an opportunity to help Sharon pass me by. While I really didn’t do anything that I think was too much to ask of someone, I do feel really good about helping Sharon pay tribute to her husband. At the end of the day, people matter, and I was humbled by the opportunity to help Sharon honor her late husband. I hope one day she and I have an opportunity to chat! She sounds like a wonderful lady and her desire to honor her husband is touching and beautiful.
I would like to thank La Vida Laguna for being an advocate of Laguna Beach.

My goal in the next 30 days is to make sure that I meet them. The woman I spoke of above, Sharon, reached out to us and we were able to help her because of events organized by La Vida Laguna. There is so much we can do together and I am excited about meeting them. Thank you Sharon for inspiring me to get out and talk with the folks at La Vida Laguna and I am so pleased to assist you with honoring your late husband. That is so wonderful and you won’t find a more amazing place than Aliso Beach in Laguna to participate in a drum circle that allows you to honor a lost love!
