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.

As time goes by....

I have thousands of shots of the danzantes from the last three years.  And it is no wonder that many of them are of these two wonderfully photogenic girls, Ailani Ruiz Ruiz, Doña Marina, and Juana Lisabeth Contreras Vincente, Malinche.  It has been so much fun to watch them grow both as dancers and as little girls.  They started here in July of 2013.... and then... time passed

Love the shot of Juana Lizbeth with danzantes and Picacho in the background. I'm going to miss the girls...

Yes, it is. What a blessing and an honor it has been... no lie.
