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.

Walk this way

I have a place I park when I go into the city and walk pretty much everywhere from there.  The spot is perfect for an easy get-out-of-town route and if you knew the traffic here, well, it can be very heavy and from this spot it is one light and on the road.  So I get to walk all over the city and yesterday it was a return to the car insurance company.  I've done this walk far too many times in the last week, but that's another story.  All I will say is that I finally managed to renew my car insurance.  It is a very nice walk and Friday is even better because the stalls and vendors are set up in Llano Park.  It was early so I managed to not succumb to the temptations of all the food and aromas that seemed to line my path.  Walk the walk...
Parents waiting for their little ones to get out of school.
There are always vendors there and this guy had on a great hat.
This one selling churros has a fine shirt on sayin' enough of the violence against animals.
Parents always end up carrying everything.
Bench decorations.  It looked like there were heads at some point, but none now.
At first glance, this guy fooled me,
but upon closer inspection, it's a painting of a guy painting a paint store.
I hate when this happens. (Thank God I have insurance)
A pub in Oaxaca?  Who knew.
Nice light detail.
Mr. Egg makes more sense than Señor Huevo if you know your vernacular.
