The City of Tempe has opened yet another salvo of anti-cultural warfare on the beautiful culture that is Mill Avenue. Though the street has gained a great deal of its appeal and interest to outside parties due to the culture that exists there, they have decided to build residences within close distance to the actual downtown, and residents are beginning to complain about one of our oldest and dearest traditions: The Drum Circle.

The midnight air over Mill Avenue hangs sweetly on my skin as I bask under the sallow laternlight of a street lamp. The drummer keep playing, feet keep pounding the pavement, and passing cars add their own urban rhythm to the tribal sensation of culture and community. I inhale deeply the scent of smoldering sage as it mixes with the gentle tremulous night air; but there’s something different, something has changed about this oh-so-familiar gathering that I have always come to love.

Tonight, I stand with them in exile.


As many can guess, I and others have some strong feelings about this situation. I will try my best to bring out all of the facts and articles on the Internet and in the media pertaining to the situation. And there is also a thread here on Vexations for anyone who cares to discuss.
