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 that go peep in the night

Every house has it share of other inhabitants.  In New England, I have mice and spiders and have had squirrels in the past - something I would not wish on anyone.  Here, I have spiders, big fat ones, little tiny ones, even a Black Widow or two, scorpians, well maybe only one, and little things that go peep in the night.  I assumed they are geckos and this morning I saw this little spot on the wall. 
OMG!  Confirmation
I feel lucky to have survived this encounter.  It could eaten me while I was innocently sleeping only a few meters away.
