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.

The ladies who lunch

I managed to catch some of the hard-working ladies taking a break and grabbing a quick bite.

This woman works at the little food stall that is always packed right next to Carmen Alta.
Popcorn.  I can almost feel it in my mouth.
A working lunch in front of the cathedral.
On the planton, the sit-in, front, it continues.  Trash is becoming a major problem.  It did not help that it poured last night.  Kinda a drag.

diclosure: the fact that I'm totally biased since i was born in Oaxaca, has nothing to do with your awesome work.

keep posting.
