The traditional, loving relationship between a grandfather and his grandson is a time-honored connection. The slow pace of watching a baseball game together, telling of the good old days, or spending a summer’s day on the bank of a river waiting for that elusive nibble is the Rockwellian impression of bridging two lives that lack the middle generation. How heartwarming, how calming, how sweet … how boring! That is sooo 1900’s. Where’s the action, where’s the excitement, where’s the adventure?! For a grandfather and a grandson to really bond, you need the unexpected, the unknown, the unbelievable. Why just tell stories when you can live them? Join Tristan and his grandpa as they join their love of music and mystery one Christmas when a special gift takes them beyond the three dimensions safely embraced by the typical cross-generational pair. Drumming Out Of Time may not be for the traditionalist. The rocking chair set may be better off avoiding this exciting and risky venture. But maybe you are one of those people who can’t help but use their talents to explore a new quest or two. Grandparents, be careful exposing your grandchild to the possibilities of the unknown and unproven. They may find ordinary life too mundane. Go ahead, take the risk and read Drumming Out Of Time to your favorite grandchild. Maybe both of you will be inspired to live out your stories instead of just talking about them.
