The here and now... and what and why

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.

Lluvia - Rain

It rained!!!!! Yesterday evening and last night. Real rain. And for several hours. I think we got about two inches and it was widespread.

Today the wind is howling and it looks like we might get more rain after a beautiful morning in which all the trees looked fresh after having the dust washed off. It has been so dry for so long that it takes a while for the plants to really believe it. It is not like the hills turn green overnight. But they do look happier and fresher. You can feel what's coming.

Click on the picture to see how beautiful the rain looked.

UPDATE: It did rain again. Another heavy soaking rain. There was serious damage from flooding in certain areas and two people were killed.
