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.

Icons cont....

Frida is everywhere these days.  Maybe I should get one of these camisas...  Hmmm which one... so many to choose from......Hipster Frida?
Frida that does not look like Frida
Or Vogue Frida which is very in vogue, obviously
Uh, someone did not get the memo.. yes iconic, but....

How one can compete an icon....especially a dead one? Forever young, forever misterious, impererfections lost in the unknown past....purity of idealized image! Unfair competition, yet reality....

So very true.

Anyway, there is always hope (as long as you are alive), embrace the memo of the other icon, scoopy will do just fine, the face of the woman wearing the shirt just proved it, and the competition goes to the air....somewhere over the Maian Rivera.
Than, the only question remains: When is the next dancing competition in Oaxaca?
