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.

Juxtapostion- from this to that

Here where I was last weekend,...

and here's where I am today.
A quick trip to Beantown.  On my way out of Oaxaca, we were stopped and searched by plainsclothes police at the airport.  It turned out that Presidente Calderon was due in shorty after I left.  It did not all go well.  More about that later.

Is that your car under all that snow? Did you have to shovel the walkway? Don't you miss New England?

Yes, that was my car, but really the shoveling was not too bad. Everything is cleaned up and I am soooo ready to get back to San Sebastian. Winter is better experienced conceptually rather than in reality. Ya dig?
