Last week as I was walking the neighborhood, I found some pieces of green and aged bamboo. Someone had cut them and discarded them as refuse. Hmmmmm….I have paid for bamboo stakes. I picked them up and carried them for the fifteen minute walk back to my house. I guess that is one of the “Quirky” aspects of this post. I have always been a scavenger, finding pleasure in turning discards into treasure or useful items.
I found out later that my nephew knows how to make an Australian instrument out of the green bamboo. It is called a digeridoo. I located a few videos on Youtube; I’ve embedded one here if you are interested in viewing. I find it quite an amazing and quirky talent to be able to bring such beautiful tones and rhythms out of a simple piece of bamboo.
