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.

Iluvia! - Rain!

The weather is weird everywhere. That is the nature of weather. So there were 25 foot waves in St. Thomas. It is very cold in Europe and the States, even Florida. Hey, it is winter. And maybe, just maybe, it might be some of this global warming stuff. When it is hot now, it is hot and then it swings the opposite way to the cold side - just like a sine wave with increasing amplitude, spoken like a true electronic musician.
At any rate. it is raining here!
It never rains here at this time of year. And it is cold.
Mother Nature is surely saying something.

Maybe, it is simply, "Shut up and enjoy the rain, dummy." The plants sure are.
