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.

The hits keep comin'...

The is a real "man on the street" thing.... 
One of the museums set up easels with blank sheets on them so that people could express their feelings about The Donald or as he is known, Drumpf.
"Don't hold back.  Tell us how you really feel."
Somehow, misogyny appears to disgust people everywhere. 
His over-the-top hatred of Mexicans (and women, Islam, and just about everything else) has not been missed by those around me.
There was no collection plate for paying for building the wall, but if it will keep him and his ilk out, people will gladly chip in.  And who was the horrible person who wrote "manitos?"...
I think I saw him in the mirror this morning..... no doubt a reference to our least favorite "short-fingered vulgarian"... and for all these years I thought it was a diss of Bulgarians;-)
