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.

Laundry Day

If you have ever had your clothes washed here in one of the many lavanderias, you will have marveled at how perfectly they are folded when you get them back.  They are miraculously packed into plastic bags, so tighlty that you need a crowbar to get them out.  I often wonder how they do it and now I know.  It is done by space aliens.
What this guy/gal is doing with these pants is beyond me.  It looks like they have been turned into some sort of piano keyboard, which sure works for me.  I want one.
These from shots are from beautiful downtown Etla on a bright sunny Sunday.  It has been surprisingly cool here, 70's during the day and 40's at night, so that sun has felt great.  The above were right next to this spectacular piece of street art.
