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.

Just recovering from a fun, but very wet and rainy couple of days in Teotitlan del Valle.  The convite got a good drenching and the danzantes and castillo and fireworks, had some long delays as the heavens opened up.  It has been so dry, I am sure the rain made many people very happy.... me, included.
No matter what the weather, it is always an adventure and this time was no exception.  The rain put a serious damper on things....  and the light was never great for photos, but there are always shots to be taken, especially when there are such wonderfully interesting and photogenic subjects.
There oughta be a law... for being that cute.  And I love how she carries herself and her fashion sense.  She danced her own dance while watching the danzantes.
And then this wonderful dress right along her abuela's very traditional plaid.
Somehow, these outfits look like they come from a different era, but still work perfectly.
And the guys?  They are just cool.
