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.

Someone asked me how Muertos was this year and I had to stop and think.... It was a different, a little more laid back, but we spent more time with family.  Not my family, but my family, if you know what I mean.  Not only eating and drinking, but sharing thoughts and stories with Zacarias and Emilia Ruiz, but with their son, Sergio and his wife, Virginia (La Reina) and one of their other sons, good friend Antonio and his wife, Claudia, and their three kids, Beatriz, Antonito and Diego.  It felt good and I realized that I have know them all for quite a few years, enough to think, to know, that they are family.
And here are mother and son Sergio back in the day.
And Sergio and Elisabeth on their wedding day.
And Antonio in his brand new display room.
You know, family.
