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.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Not to be believed

There is a wonderful cool breeze blowing down from the mountains this morning, but that was not the case yesterday afternoon. May is normally the hottest month of the year here and the last two days were well into the 30's or 90's.

At around three, I heard thunder, but there is plenty of thunder around here, so thought nothing of it. Three hours later, it was pouring with high winds and then it started to hail...
It was as intense a weather moment as I have been in in quite a while. Lot of damage to the plants and some major flooding.
We will have to see what today brings. At least I don't need to water.
