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 closer look at Yanhuitlan - Dishes?

I keep noticing new things each time I return and I keep returning to Yanhuitlan mainly because it is such a fascinating place.    First, there is the setting,
then the size
and scale,
looking up
then there is the restoration
and finally, the details.
Those sure look like dishes or plates set into the dome of the steeple.  Wonder what the story is about them?  Time for some research.

So interesting to compare the photos of the whole building to the closed up shots. seems that by zooming in and focusing on details you can understand better the soul of the culture.

That is the first satellite dish system to bring TV Azteca to los padres.

I would have bet on Televista given their connections.
