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.

Big wheel keeps on spinnin'

Lots of stories from around the globe, but the issue that just will not go away here and throughout all of Mexico may well be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back. 
The disappearance and murder of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa remains on the front burner, here in Oaxaca, nationally and internationally.  One sees sign of it everywhere.

 The iconic statue in Llano park.
 The zocalo.
Let's hope all these protests make a difference.... and I am not just talkin' about these local protests.  As they like to say, "Think globally, act locally."
