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.

Una bendición - a blessing

Water is such a blessing.  We are in the dry season, not a drop since late September.... really it has been so long, who remembers.  However, San Sebastian Etla is at the base of the runoffs from the springs just above San Agustin Etla and water is plentiful.  There is a constant stream (pun intended) of 10,000 liter tank trucks on the roads from the many places right around me that sell water.  And remember that San Agustin  supplies about 20 percent of the water for the city of Oaxaca.  Roundabout way of saying it is green here while most other places are brown and very dry.  This is about 200 meters from my house.  That's San Agustin just out of sight, about four k.
