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.

So good to be back...

I've returned and it feels so nice to be back here in the sun and warmth.... and that includes the people, too.  I ran over to Etla to get fruits and vegetables.  Wow, there is just no comparison in terms of freshness, quality and cost with El Norte.  So after getting quesillo, tomatoes, avocados, carrots, potatoes, chilies and some fresh fruit, I stopped at my favorite juice stand and got a huge glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.  Indescribable!  I felt immediately healthier.
Carrot juice anyone?
And the best part about returning?  I am dealing with a different type of bull.

Love looking at your pictures. There is so much color, decoration, and abundance. It's a wonderful sight to behold from behind my computer in the cold lackluster gray of New England!
