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.
This time in San Sebastian Etla just down the road from San Agustin.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

Gracias to Malia and the Obamas

I know the US press has pulled a lot of the stories about Malia and her classmates' visit to Oaxaca, but not so the Mexican press.  For many reasons, many people are thankful and pleased that they came, saw, experienced and no doubt, developed a love and respect for the place as have so many of us.
Here is a photo and story from Noticiasmex.
 Let's hope others come and do the same.  You really should.  What are you waiting for?

The media here in the states has not reported ANYTHING
About Malia's trip to Mexico. If it wasn 't for Chris' blog we wouldn't have know about the trip. Too bad for Mexico -it would be nice to see "if it's safe for Malia it' safe for you
