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.

Night and Day

Oaxaca knows how to do public displays that can capture the eye and the imaginatin.  These palms are right next to Santo Domingo.

By day they look like this.

But at night they are transformed.  Yes, that is the moon up there.

The lights slowly fade from color

to color. 

They may be LED's. 

The shifts are similar to those produced by the wheels that people use to light their silver Christmas trees.

Ah... technology marches on.

The effect is wonderful.  Note the "2501 Emigrantes" sculptures on the right.
