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.

Posting Posters

Off to the city to get photos printed and to see what the latest offering of posters and street art are.
The revolution will not be twittered.

 I want to find a copy of this one.  It has the different varieties of agave for mezcal..... it also explains why I have seen cuish in graffiti all over the place.

Maybe a political figure or one of the missing?  .... it would be irresponsible not to speculate.

One of the Flores Magnón brothers?

Maybe... we will have to ask around.

The "Cuish" poster comes from a small mezcaleria at 712 Diaz Ordaz. The guy behind the counter is the artist. Last time I was there he gave me a poster, there seemed to be quite a few of them. Enjoy.
