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.

The hits just keep comin'...cont.

From The Canadian Press
OAXACA, Mexico — Workers at world-famous archaeological sites in the Mexican state of Oaxaca are striking, shutting dozens of tourists out of pre-Colombian ruins, museums and former convents.
The strike affects 16 different locations, including Monte Alban and Mitla, which attract visitors almost year-round.
The unionized workers that called the 24-hour work-stoppage Thursday are employed by the National Institute for Anthropology and History.
They have called for the dismissal of an INAH manager who they accuse of changing rank-and-file jobs without the consent of the local union.
INAH spokesman Julio Castrejon said it was an internal union conflict. He said INAH "has nothing to do with it" but was helping to mediate.
