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.

Closer to.... ahhhh

Not quite there yet, as reentry is always different and this time I returned to a leaking water system and not your normal leak, a hidden leak behind or beneath concrete.  Ah well, I called the two Don Juans and they assured me, they could fix it.  They return with jackhammers maƱana.

However, today, the sun is shining, it is warm and there are sheep outside doing a nice pruning job on the overhanging growth on the street-side fence.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the gardens fared.  It was dry, but all the mulch helped and lots of them adapt well to the dry season.  Everything looks nice, happy and healthy.  Lots of fresh dill, rosemary, thyme and cilantro.

Update:  The wind is howling and there is a fine band playing quite nearby.  Real music, you know, with tubas.

Update 2:  Oh, glorious food.... yes, real tortillas, tasajo, quesillo, avocados, tomatoes and OMG, fruit... I missed the quality and quality so much.  I have a bowl filled with watermelon, melon, pineapple, banana and oranges, all so fresh and tasty... heaven.
