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.

Over and Under in El Tule

People go to Santa Maria del Tule to see the largest tree in the world.  The tree is impressive and seems to make the church next to it appear to be a miniature.  The church is actually quite small, but quite stunning inside.
Looking up one sees this...

I love that this is such an obvious indigenous face, not so much the cherubs surrounding her.
And the ceramic tile floor is just as spectacular.
El Tule is one of Oaxaca's most popular tourist destinations, so when you go, be sure to check out the church.  Another place well worth the visit, only 30 minutes from the city at most.
