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.

I could write a book...

And maybe I should... I have so many graffiti and street art shots.  And each day it changes or disappears.  One has to be fast and lucky.

Don't you dare park you thingamajig here.

There apparently is a book on the Oaxaca street graffiti. We were in Oaxaca during December and my photographer husband John ran across an art studio in the SE historic district that had a publication about it. John loved the graffiti art when we were there 5 years ago and took many more shots last month. And yes, it disappears quickly under more layers of paint.
