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.
¡Soy consciente de todas las tradiciones del Internet!
If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

Sara Lee now a Bimbo

 Mexican Baker Bimbo Buys Sara Lee
Mexican baking giant Grupo Bimbo SAB announced Tuesday that it is buying Sara Lee Corp.’s North American bakery business for $959 million.

The purchase of North American Fresh Bakery includes “a royalty-free perpetual license” to the Sara Lee brand in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Eastern and Central Europe, “as well as a portfolio of regional brands that are well-regarded in their local markets,” Bimbo, the world’s biggest baker, said in a press release.

Grupo Bimbo employs more than 102,000 people at 99 plants and 1,000 distribution centers in 17 countries in the Americas and Asia.

Sara Lee, based in Downers Grove, Illinois, has plants in more than 40 countries and markets products in more than 180 nations around the world. 

It is funny how different words in different cultures mean different things.

I discovered your music on Jango by pure coincidence. And now I am addicted. I listen to it all day long in my office, and am even trying to track it down on Amazon so I can listen to it at home. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME??!!!!

Oddly, I used to live in Mexico too - but in Merida. I studied there for a while but then returned to native UK before exporting myself here to France. Now I have discovered your blog I am going to find out more about you!

I particularly love 'Lullaby' and 'Patience' - where did they come from? Can you share your inspiration a little, cos I am fascinated!
