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.

A bird of a different feather

A late afternoon shot of one of my neighbors.
When I am in the States I never eat chicken, not that I am much of a meat eater, but it just doesn't taste like much of anything there, kinda like cardboard.  I am, however, a great believer in the power of "a little chicken soup" as a cure-all.  I mean, grandmothers all over the world can't be wrong.  And there is nothing like a good stock made from real home-grown chickens.  It can be so rich and tasty.  I am lucky to have the Comedor Colon in Etla that makes some of the best chicken dishes around and always has a large pot of the richest stock.  Their soup ( w/lime, chile, onion, rice and breast meat) and some aspirin got me through my bout with la gripe.  Now I get it just to keep me healthy.... and happy.
