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.

In the meanime

I am still waiting for my internet connection to be cleared and registered with the government. Don't worry, I think they do the same in El Norte. They said it would be another 20 minutes. Right, I am still waiting for the donkeys to fly overhead and drop bars of gold on me, too.

However, I am reading David Lida's book about Mexico City for an upcoming trip there and am I psyched. Is is called First Stop in the New World and is a great read. Here's a link to his blog.

So just carry on with what you were doing. I will post something soon about a recent visit to San Bartolo Coyotepec, the home of barro negro, black pottery. Be slightly more patient than I am being with this internet thing. Of course, if you are reading this, you have it. It's me that doesn't. Aargh!
