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.

Who'll stop the rain?.... I mean start the rain

May is normally the hottest month of the year.  This year, everyone is complaining about heat and lack of rain... and air quality.  I am surrounded by mountains and you would never know it.  You can't see them, hidden by haze.  I have a rain collection system on this house, but no rain means no water.  I just had to buy my third pipa (water tanker truck) of the year, which is a first.  Normally, there would have been one or two deluges by now, but nothing in sight.  It is like waiting for Godot, better known as Chaac, the Rain God.
