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.

If it's Tuesday...

Or any other day of the week, there is a protest or blockade somewhere.  It is just normal life and people deal.  Social media makes life easier.  There is a Facebook group with over 10,000 members that follows all the action reporting on current marches, blockades, protests and accidents.  So these shots are from last Tuesday, which was Flag Day, Dia de la Bandera. As sister blogger spixl posts, there was lots of action. I was just passing through and caught this contingent, obviously from the campo, the country, continuing the fight to keep corn free of trans-genetic infection.  Without corn there is no country.

 What a great poster.  Wake up Benito! and say no to trans-genetic corn.
 It's still possible.
Monsanto es una plaga aqui.
