New Review: From Awareness Magazine
DRUMS AND DRAGONS
Written by Rhonda Lynn,
Illustrated by Serena Wright-Taylor
Robin the little dragon feels like a failure because he can’t breathe fire. The other young dragons make fun of him. Unhappy and ashamed, Robin seeks out Midir, the greatest warrior and teacher of the dragons. Midir tells Robin, “True fire lives in your spirit and heart.” Robin is still afraid that he cannot be a true dragon without breathing fire. But Midir says everyone has a special gift, and it is up to Robin to find his.

That day, Robin watches as Midir easily defeats an evil Shadow Dragon who attacks the village. But when the Shadow Dragon comes back the next day, only Robin is there to protect the village children. Robin has to fight the evil dragon alone — and somehow defeat him without breathing fire. To protect his friends, Robin must face his fears and find his special gifts.

Children will identify with Robin, the little dragon who doesn’t breathe fire. Thi s book will help children to overcome their own fear of failure, and help them see that being different can be a blessing. Robin learns to use mediation and drumming to quiet his mind and keep up his spirits, and children can learn to do this too. Readers will cheer with the villagers when Robin uses his own special gift to defeat the evil dragon.

The appealing illustrations of dragons and children glow with color and may inspire readers to draw their own dragons.

Recommended for children, ages 4-7.

Published by Pelican Productions Art Studio, this book is available at your local bookstore or www.RhondaLynn.com

Importance of Education

Education is truly the key to success in all forms, no matter what your passion may be. I personally have 2 college degree’s, one in accounting and one in the arts, I have taken guitar classes for over 3 years from Richard Thesis, 3 years of piano, many classes in Art and to this day I am a student of the Martial Arts.

Education did not come easy for me, I really had to focus and study in school as a child. The same thing with playing the guitar and the martial arts, I had to work at it and practice a lot. I did not grow up in a rich family either. Sometimes I had good teachers that made education fun and sometimes bad teacher.

Education comes in many forms. I met Ed Parker when I was around 12 years old at a bible study class at his home in Pasadena, California with my mom. I hated that class and wanted to leave, he took me in the other room and for hours he talked to me about life. I never was able to take martial arts lessons from him because my parents could not afford them at the time. But the education I got on life from him was priceless.

I met Billy Blanks & John Author in my 20’s. Billy Blanks himself told he me that education did not come easy for him either, all his teachers thought he would be a failure in life and he did not grow up rich. He practiced the martial arts in his basement every night for hours. To this day he is one of the greatest martial artists to ever live and a 7 time world champion. He was and still is one of my favorite teachers.

Education does not come easy for everyone; some have to work harder at achieving goals than others, but no matter who you are it can be done.

Eric Singer is one of music´s great drummers
and an inspiration to young drummers.

He really claims his inner power through drumming.

A full series of paintings & sketches from his early career to now
will be displayed on my web page through out this year.

For this sketch, credit must be given to Kenny Chu an 18 year old young drummer
who is a big fan of Eric's.

Now in her fifties she loves to bring people together to celebrate spirituality and higher consciousness.

“Music and movement is very healing and uplifting for children as well as all of us”

“I think if world leaders would drum and dance together before their meetings the world would be very different and much better!” says Serena.

Serena is married to visionary artist Douglas Taylor and has two grown children.
