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.

El Dia de Santa Cruz

Normally, I would and should be climbing El Picacho in Teotitlan del Valle on May 3, el Dí­a de la Santa Cruz, the Day of the Holy Cross, but...... Oaxaca has been so hot and dry these past few weeks that I can't muster the energy.  I know, I know, pathetic.....
I know I am not alone.  The heat is all people are talking about, not even Drumpf's name comes up, just, it's hot, hot, hot.  The new normal?
They are saying it's a drought and the temps have been well up in the 90's and it does not cool down much in the nights.  People are concerned.  Anyway, this is the day for construction worers to put crosses and garlands up on the projects on which they are working.... and for practical jokes and of course, cohetes, firecrackers.  You would not believe how many I have heard today and it's early.
 Party on, Garth.
