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.

Soon to be where the walls are this color and it's normal. In New England its the color of lilies.I think it will be quite healthy to get out of the country for a bit. This is such a strange culture, it should be interesting to observe it from the outside. Frankly, my dear....

More importantly, to immerse oneself in a different culture for a bit sure helps puts things in perspective. I want to see what has happened while I've been away.So a quick flight, some molé with fresh tortillas, sounds like a good start to this one. Maybe even the smell of gardenias in the air. Pretty sweet, no? I think the plan is to visit some villages in Puebla, known for their ceramics, but who cares, long as I can feel that wind coming off the mountains, sit in the zocalo and see friends, I'm all set.
