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.

Guelaguetza Roof cont.....

The Guelaguetza is coming, July 19 and 26 if I do the math correctly, and the roof over the stadium is, well, I don't know if it is proceeding on schedule. Seems like there is quite a ways to go, but I do not know the final design. It is hard to get a shot of because it sits atop el cerro, the hill overlooking the city and there is a major road in front of it. Yes, I could climb the stairs and get a better shot. I will next week. This is from Llano Park which is quite a good distance. This one and the top one are from the car as I flew by. Will they make it?
