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.

It doesn't get any better than this.

I am always lucky finding parking places mainly because I love to walk the city.  What are a few extra blocks?  How lucky am I?  Eat your hearts out.  What a blessing it is to park on a street named after an iconic image, the Plumed Serpent.

As I walked, I popped into the courtyard abutting Carmen Alto, where they were preparing to celebrate the Christ of Esquipulas, with dancing and some of the best fireworks of the year.

I was early and caught these shots.

Hey, come back, niña!  You stole my heart!

I missed the fireworks.  I made the mistake of watching the NE Patriots get stomped by the NY Jets.
Do you like the large format for photos?
