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.

Any tree is hard to replace

So sad to see that two of the beautiful flamboyant trees in front of Santo Domingo had become so diseased that they had to be cut down.  Three or four still remain, but the absence of those two leaves a hole that will take years to fill.  So no more shots like this from a couple of years ago.  I think you can see a few early dead branches.  They were already on their way out.
Now here's what remains.
Not sure how they are going to prevent the others from succumbing to the same pests and diseases.  However, I trust that something good will eventually be planted there.
