Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.
First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico. Time passed. More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening. A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango(World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores. ¡Soy consciente de todas las tradiciones del Internet! If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.
Sorry not to be posting, but I have been taking folks around to see the sights. After so many years of coming here and now living here, I am getting to know my way around. I am just passing on what others have told and shown me. So if you are in th neighborhood and need a guide... Needless to say, I have plenty to process and post and will do so in the coming days.
Here is a sweet picture from people watching in the zocalo. Sitting at one of the many tables surrounding the square, drinking coffee, sodas or eating a meal is one of the joys of the place.
This looks like four generations enjoying the scene.
