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.

Tree work in the zocalo....

Mixed emotions as I watched tree work on the huge laurel on the northeast corner of the zocalo.  This is one of the oldest and most famous zocalos in all Mexico.  Hey, it's where Carlos Castaneda met Don Jun.  The trees are such an important part of the ambience and they are slowly but surely getting old and diseased.  It happens.  There may be various problems besides old age.  Insects, fungi, blights and people in general.  There's a tree worker up there.  See him?
Pretty nice work if you could get it.
Let's hope they keep on keepin' on.
