Conversation dances to the drumming of discussion

To our good friends–

What do you think of this?—

Yesterday in Ft. Wayne John Steinbach and I came upon a new way of looking at discussion. Because it is related to percussion, and because drumming is one of the earliest ways of touching souls, discussion also shares in that. Percussion is to strike or shake through. I had not seen this word shake in there before. It is from the Latin, quatere. Quake I suppose is related. Looks to be closer to Quash. It is something that shakes us, to the core. So discussion does not have to be avoided—it touches us closely, in our chest, in our diaphragm. The dance of conversation perhaps can make good connection through the drumming of discussion.
