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.

Atzompa - The day after

I drove up to the archeological site to see what, if any, damage the fire did yesterday.  Fortunately, the blackened ground ended right below the parking area
It burned a fairly large area, but not to worry, that smoke is from an entirely different fire a few miles away.
As I said yesterday, these fires are pretty common and people hardly ever freak out about them or let them get out of control.  Every now and then, the winds whip them up, but in general, there always seems to be some sort of firebreak, like the parking lot, and they die out.
Looks like only the hardiest of plants and seeds will survive, but for sure, they will be back as soon as the rains come.
More good news, it looks like the other entrance from the Monte Alban side is finally open.  I plan to explore it soon.
