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.

Muzak? - Etla syle

The market in Etla was really hoppin' this morning.  All this rain has produced some mighty fine looking things.  Judging from the abundance of mandarins, tangerines, it must be the season.  I asked how many I could get for five pesos and was promptly given ten.  That's about $.04 US a piece and man o man, are they tasty.  I'm ready to go back and spend another five whole pesos on them.
But wait!  What's that behind the giant rolls.  I hear music.
And there you have it, one of Etla's strolling musicians.  I love the fact that there is always some sort of live music playing while I am shopping.
 I needed a burro to get all the good stuff I bought home.
