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.

Easter in Mitla - Pascua en Mitla

A beautiful Easter Sunday morning and no better place to be than Mitla.  I have been here before for Easter celebration and it is such a warm and serene place it always feels great.  Mitla has ten thousand years of history and you can feel it all around you. 
It is the place where corn was developed and on the edge of mezcal land.  They always use agave flowers for decorations.  Simply elegant.
 This is the view from inside the church.
While this was behind me.
We caught the very beginning of mass with lots of excitement in the air.
Such a sense of community and happiness.
 Smiling through the clouds of incense.
Happy Easter!
