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.

Salida de sol - Puesta de sol

I thought this would be easy and I would increase my vocabulary with a couple of words, sunrise and sunset. Not quite so easy. Here's what I found.

SUNRISE: salida de sol
DAWN: alba, crepusculo (diurno)
DAWN LIGHT:alba,luz del alba,luz crepuscular (diurno)
SUNSET: puesta de sol, ocaso
TWILIGHT: crepusculo (nocturno),luz crepuscular (nocturna)
DUSK: anochecer

CREPUSCULO: twilight and dawn light (and those periods of time)
ALBA: dawn, dawn light, (before sunrise)

Crepusculo refers to the little light after sunset and before sunrise(the first and last lights of the day). Alba only refers to the one before sunrise.
