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.

Nails in the Coffin

The main stream media, MSM, is slipping even further into oblivion. Who could imagine that Twitter and Facebook would eclipse them in coverage of world events? Just another indicator that the world is passing them by.

After pummeling us with the whole "Axis of Evil" stuff for so long, when things really begin to happen there, they feed us reruns or ignore the issues entirely. And the MSM seems to think that we won't notice or care.

To quote the increasingly irrelevant Govenator, "Hasta la vista, baby." Stick a fork in it. It's over. The times are achangin'.
