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.

I was just thinkin'

Yes, I am still here. Sometimes one must live and bag the bloggin'. A few days to contemplate and observe. And as for putting it all into words, I am speechless (for the moment). I continue to follow the action in Oaxaca (it ain't good,) the Virgin Islands (it's worse,) the local scene (dire economy and the Celtics & Bruins are done for the season,) and the national scene (don't get me goin')

So the next obvious and logical step is graffiti.
First this seer Virgin from last May complete with face mask, foreboding the swine flu. A detail from the above. "You and I met on that terrible night......"

Nix-o, no, no on "bag the bloggin'". Some of us actually read what you write and don't just look at the pretty pictures.

BTW, finally got around to listening to the CD. I am enTRANCEd--literally. Loved it.
