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.

Back to normal?

Those of you who missed me...well, you know what they say... How can you miss me if I won't go away or something like that. I took a quick trip to El Norte. Why? Well, for one, my doctor had a cancellation and I snapped it up. Don't get me going on health care.... at any rate, it made sense to see him this decade. Got a clean bill of health, so it was worth it.

So here I am where sights like these seem more normal than the things I saw at the North Shore Mall. Talk about feeling like an alien. It must have been my imagination, but people sure seemed like they were looking at me like I was one. Must have been my nice new Emiliano Zapata tee.
While I was gone, there was lots of rain and I returned to what was brown and now is green. Ahhh...
