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.

Now that's a headline

A rough translation "Fuck Oaxaca!

From Imparcial this morning:
Business leaders, leaders of social organizations and unions thundered against the Interior Ministry by apathy and neglect that has addressed the problem of Oaxaca, where ineptitude and lack of authority a popular insurrection lives and a siege that held incommunicado the entity and the Oaxacan plunged into chaos.
The social rebellion facing the State of Oaxaca right now capitalized not only the teachers' discontent, but the social irritation road closures and economic losses that have recorded the productive sectors, said the leaders who questioned that every day is increasing the government's impotence against the excesses of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE).
Also, business leaders agreed that the company deserves respect and official indifference hurts Oaxacan, who are already thinking about a general strike and taxes.
The secretary general of the Federation of Markets Oaxaca, Amancio Pérez Ruiz said that it seems that the federal government is willing to "fuck Oaxaca" at the slow pace that has addressed the magisterial conflict.
