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.

Let there be light....

It poured in September when we were last in Teotitlan del Valle for the danza de la pluma and all the festivities.  However, last weekend, the sun was out in all its glorious splendor and all the colors really popped.  Everything that could glitter and shine, did so.
 Sun and wind made of a wonderful and rare dynamic.
The light added such energy to the dancers
These dancers are so good after three years of dancing, but they seemed particularly inspired.  Maybe it was the light.
 Doña Marina, Ailani Ruiz Ruiz, almost glowed.
You can see the little camera attached to her outfit.
Lots of shots to go through, so more in a bit.
