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.

Pan y Queso

These are my new neighbors, Pan y Queso (Bread and Cheese)
Queso was found in the market in Etla last week. Etla is famous for its cheese, hence the name. My neighbor, Pat, after thinking about it all day, went back and found him lying in the walkway and saved him from sure death. All he needed was a bath, food and some love and he was a happy go lucky puppy. But two pups are always better than one, so yesterday Pat went to the vet in Etla and picked a friend for Queso. Pan is a tiny Golden Retriever, we think.Many dogs live a hard life in Mexico. These two will probably never know how lucky they are to be adopted by such a kind and compassionate human being. Pat seems pretty happy, too.
