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.

Culture clash

It is always fun to bounce between Oaxaca and Boston.  One never knows what one will find.  One year it was sixteen (16!) squirrels in the attic.  This year it is lush in both places as the rains have come in Oaxaca and it is a normal early June in New England, one day beautiful, the next cool, gray and rainy.
While I'm here, I'm trying to update all my little devices and get the latest versions of my music and photography software.  Download speeds are too slow in Oaxaca, so I always do it here and Wow!, technology keeps speeding up making the learning curve lots of fun.  New techniques yield new results.  Boston at its finest
 A slightly different vista from last week, Oaxaca at its finest.

I love the contrast between the reflection of the framed sky in Boston and the free sky in Oaxaca...

Rumor has it, that it's the same sky.
