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.

Whaddya kno?

Remember when I said that the piano would change things? Well, I gave my first formal lesson today upstairs in my new studio. The kid probably didn't know what hit him, getting the normal first lesson, which gets them through first year of college theory in about an hour. My former students are probably laughing remembering it. We'll have to see where it goes from here. What's next, a gig?
No, it wasn't this guy in the zocalo. I just liked his guitar and asked if I could snap him. You know, he coulda used a lesson or two, he couldn't play a lick. but don't tell him.
