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.

Practice, practice, practice...

Kids can lead a very different life here, but still, they are just kids, you know, sweet li'l heart stealers.
Some spend many hours on the streets, but hey, it's a good time to get homework done
 This little one had a great deal going.  She walked up and stuck a sticker on me that said, "Te amo."
 Hard to resist.
I remember being inspired watching some old guy walk down the street and give a coin to every street musician and every single kid.  Compassion is very easy to practice here.  How about where you are?
