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.

Tope! Tope! Tope!

Ah yes, these are the words that occasionally get screamed as one approaches some unforeseen tope or speed bump, which are everywhere in Mexico.  They can be smooth or bone jarring, not to mention what they do to the car.  So I find it humorous that there are many more of them here now, especially in the wealthiest suburbs.
Of course, they are much less bone jarring, barely a blip, but they still work,  One has to slow down.  And many are flashing little LED's powered by solar panels.  However, I'm back to the real thing maƱana.  Here's hoping all the protests, blockades and vandalism at the airport left my humble car intact.
