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.

Followup to Henry's Letter

From Narco News,
A stroll downtown on Saturday May 30 showed the streets fairly empty of traffic, but the zócalo was lively with tables of denunciation and information. The fair atmosphere still holds while Section 22 is in its state assembly to decide their next act. With vendors, graffiti and blaring music, café tables were not much occupied. Regular folks perched on the park walls.

Is the "Jim" in the Nancy Davies story really Henry?
Amate is the only shop in Oaxaca that is anywhere near being 100% dependent on tourists for business... and it would be on Nancy's way home. I think her book "Let the People Decide" is one of Amate's best selling titles.

If "Jim" is really Henry, only Henry would know for sure how accurate or fanciful Nancy's recollection of their encounter is.
