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.

Everything is political..

As someone who lives most of the time in Mexico, I am pretty much freaked out by all that is happening.  I love this country and its people, their history, culture, cuisine and traditions.  For me to go off some rant would do no good.  This place has taught me that respect rules and goes both ways and is a gift to each.  And many years ago, I learned from the masters, that compassion is the only viable way to go through life..... but maybe that's only how it is in my house.  Anyway, these photos from market day in Etla are political.  They say whatever you want.
One can always tell what's in season... these greeted me at the entrance.
Some of these end up in your market, too.
But they are a bit fresher here.
Tangerines right off the trees.
 ¡Viva Mexico!
