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.

Purple rain...

Who knows where we in the dry season, it could be weeks or months until the rains come.  The countryside is so dry.  Everything is a shade of brown or yellow.  And then, all of a sudden, there are explosions of purple dotting the hills and streets.  The colors always seem to me to have a Japanese quality when framed against the sky.
The jacarandas are blooming.  They are harbingers of things to come and always such a welcome sight.  They are just starting and will continue for maybe four to six weeks.
Then, all the petals will fall and there will pools of purple everywhere.  Then the rains come... ojala!
