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.

Arboles de la vida

I needed a little more life in my life.... so I went on an arbol de la vida binge, all tapetes, rugs.  I love how different each one is.  My life is richer surrounded by this little forest of trees.
These two are from a good friend, Sergio Mendoza, from Teotitlan del Valle, of course.
Such unique designs.
The pictures do not do them justice.  I hung them up in the stairwell and then discovered I could not get a decent shot of them without killing myself.  These two are from different artisanos, but were made to hang next to each other.  Over two meters each.
I wonder if I am done with this binge.... I think not.
