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.

Back to Oaxaca

I made the drive down from the DF to Oaxaca with no problems.... aside from a slight detour to drive though Puebla. Note to self: don't drive in Mexico alone without a map. I hit construction south of Tepoztlan and made a wrong turn by simply following the car in front of me. My sense of direction is always good and I knew I was heading east instead of south, but what's a few extra kilometers when it gives one a chance to see the country. I know I should have taken pictures, but you know how it is when you're lost and clueless. I'll take them next time. However, I was struck by the wide expanses, the mountains and the fields of flowers and vegetables. One picture is worth a thousand words and seeing as though I don't have the photos, I will spare you the thousand words. It is good to be back in Oaxaca, but Mexico City, wow, what a place. It really put the hook in me.
