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.

Well, someone's happy

It has been a weird rainy season.  It poured in June and then was dry for the next two months.  However, the last couple of days it has been very cloudy for Oaxaca and there have been some very nice soaking rains.  I am sure all the campesinos must be happy.   And my little inner garden sure is.
A little wall art.
 There is some nice dill, all volunteers.  I have it everywhere.  That's hollyhock from Boston.  Papyrus, carrots, basil, zinnias and a few things that I have no idea what they are.
A serious broccoli plant.  That's the new door I had cut which leads to the outer garden.  A huge improvement.
 They are so happy.
I know where every one of those plants came from and all of them except the papyrus were free, because I have propagated tons of plants from single starting plants or else from saved seeds.  Cool, huh?  Hey, they grow like weeds.
