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.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch....

"Time passes slowly out here in the mountains".... a bit of a lull, but still with lots of work to keep me busy.  Some new additions to place.  A fountain!  Surrounded by thyme
Crazy, huh?  And some new wall art,
All from the ceramic place in San Sebastian Tutla.
It is mid dry season and I am still learning how to keep a garden going without using much water.  One adapts as the plants speak, "Uh, Chris, I'm dyin' here.  How about a little water?" Mostly, the plants adapt to no water and go dormant.  The ones that don't... well, that's one of life's lessons, free from the garden.  Still, I can feel the excitement, thinking of when the rains will come.  I have planted so many things, this place will explode.
