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.

Celebrating the Artist

One of my favorite "very Boston" excursions is to take the Green Line in from Riverside and get off in Copley Square.  It is always bustling with activity and filled with people.  And right in front of the square, on the Boylston street side, complete with palette and brushes, is this wonderful statue of John Singleton Copley.
I love any city that celebrates its artists.  That's Trinity Church behind him.
Iconic architecture.
Speaking of iconic buildings.  The John Hancock building. Note the little tiny plane.  Things that make you go hmmmm....
