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.

Laughing at myself

You know how your world view can be colored by the book you are reading at the time?  Well, I just finished a collection of short stories by Stephen King and one of them was about a guy who collected graffiti and wrote them down in a little book.  Lots of them were really funny or disgusting, take your choice.  Seeing as though I am on a constant search for street art and graffiti, it is one of the constants of this blog, when I saw this one, newly painted, I snapped a shot of it from the car.
And I will be the first to admit it.  I am an idiot.  Because of the short story, my mind went to the bathroom humor vault and I thought this was one of those "for a good time, call..." jokes.  I saw Ester and Liza, two names, but then I put them together and ...duh.
The little animal with the drainage pipe for a mouth might have been a clue.

What was it that Bob Barker always ended "The Price is Right" with? "Ah yes, his signature sign-off: "Help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered."
