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.
This time in San Sebastian Etla just down the road from San Agustin.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Street Art

Took a nice walk from Jalatlaco to south of the zocalo. As always, the richness of the sights, sounds and smells were uniquely Oaxacan. I shot enough for several posts, including the action at the planton in the zocalo, the roof over the Guelaguezta stadium and street life. I am always struck by the graffiti and street art. This poster on a corrugated wall with sun overhead made as good an op art piece as one could hope for. With the election next Saturday, this will all be history soon... like everything else.
