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.

Recomposed - Alvaro Carillo

A follow up to the post from a couple of days ago.  They moved the bust of the Alvaro Carillo just a few meters, but you can see, by turning it 90 degrees, it made all the difference in the world.  He is one happy composer. 
He looks fantastic.  And he lives on in all the hearts of all oaxaqueños in his wonderful music.

Update:  As the librarian from Casa Colibri informs me, this little park is called La Plazuela de la Bohemia.  Gracias!
