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.

The Women's March - Oaxacan style

This morning, under bright azure skies, 2000 people marched in support with all the other sister marches around the world and in opposition of Donald Trump.  That's right... 2000!
It was a quiet protest starting at Santo Domingo and then, led by the police, just like every other march here (and there are hundreds of them) it processed to the Alameda, just in front of the cathedral.
It was a large and diverse crowd. Pussy (Hats) Galore
I should say that is was primarily for US and foreigners, not necessarily for Mexicans.  They had a large march yesterday.  We can not participate in Mexican politics, but apparently, we own Trump, so it was fine to bring it.  And bring it, we did.  All ages were represented.
After all, it's their future more than ours.
One of the key organizers was sister blogger, spixl, who has many years of being politically active.
She and her sister organizers really did it... a YUUUGE success... and only the beginning.
