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.

There's always Hope - Esperanza

Yesterday, at the Feria de Carrizo in San Juan Guelavia, which was great, the day was made even better by seeing one of my favorite people serving up her delicious barbacoa.... Esperanza.  If her smile doesn't brighten your day, nothing will.
She is always smiling and wearing a perfect traje and yes, the plaid is traditional.  What a look... and what a wonderful person.  Go see her in the market in Tlacolula.  Her joy is contagious.... oh, and the barbacoa is some of the best.
