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.

Things are looking up

I love these shots of the interior cupolas or domes of the churches here.  One has to find dead center and half the time I have to get down on my knees  to get the whole dome, which gives the appearance that I am penitent..... like I have anything to atone for ;-)  The trick is to get the chandelier or whatever is hanging down right in the middle and voila, they become mandalas.
From Tlacolula.

The cathedral in the city
Each church is so different.... and for something completely different, looking up at thisgorgeous paper lantern at the Camino Real.
