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.

El planton - The sit-in... winding down?

According to the papers, the teachers voted last night to end the sit-in, maybe on Wednesday, and return to work.  The vote was split, so it remains to be seen what exactly will transpire.  The surrounding parts of the city seem quiet and functioning as normal.  I am sure I have missed the fiery speeches and rallies, but every time I have been in the zocalo, it has seemed relatively subdued, crowed with tents and vendors, but subdued.  Maybe it was the heat as it has been unusually hot and hazy.  There government has issued a nation-wide heat advisory.
