On the first friday of each month in downtown Phoenix, AZ there is a group that gathers to drum, dance and peacefully coexist. During the cooler months there are hundreds gathered around large, artistically carved metal drums and one artistic fire pit which reads "Burning Bush"

This is an overlay of two pictures of these metal pieces. I like the way the metal of the firepit seems to dance with the metal of the fire drum. They are sitting outside of the pharmacy I visited today. I haven't been able to drum and dance there in almost a year due to migraines. And it was painful to be out in the sun taking these pictures, even with sunglasses on. But taking this picture made me feel a bit closer to the things I miss. Like drumming and dancing on first fridays with friends, community members and perfect strangers.
