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.

Wind energy

With more wars (or threats of them) for oil -  let's face it that is what Libya is all about.  If it were about saving people, we would be helping on the Ivory Coast, but we don't know nothin' about that place - it is interesting to note that the US gets most of its oil from Canada and Mexico.  So it is even more interesting that the largest wind energy project in Lain America is being built not far from here.

from The Sun Herald
Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund (“MMIF”) today announced its participation in an equity consortium (the “Consortium”) that has acquired Energía Alterna Istmeña, S. de R.L. de C.V. and Energía Eólica Mareña, S.A. de C.V. (the “Project Companies”) from subsidiaries of Preneal, S.A. (“Preneal”) for a transaction enterprise value of MXN$1.06 billion (approximately US$89.0 million).
The Project Companies are the owners of a 396 MW late-stage wind energy project in the south-eastern region of the State of Oaxaca (the “Project”). The Project is located along the Isthmus of Tehuantepec where average regional wind speeds exceed 8.5 meters per second. The area is regarded as the best wind resource in Mexico and one of the windiest regions in the world.
