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.

Gracias! It went well, but the fun was in preparing for it, all the trips to Teo.

My partner Allie and l learned a lot about La Danza at the presentation. It was obvious you and Shannon took great pains to tell the story, and in a most complementary fashion. Your pride and love for these village people shone through. I liked the footnote that no kid stepped forward to play Cortez. Mucho gracias to you both. Ian

Gracias! Glad you enjoyed the presentation. However, I have to stress that we have barely scratched the surface to this dance and the culture from which it comes. The more I learn the less I know... It just gets better the more we experience.
