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.
¡Soy consciente de todas las tradiciones del Internet!

Getting ready for Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday, Domingo de Ramos, is the beginning of Semana Santa, one of the most special weeks of the year in Oaxaca.  There are plenty of visitors and folks are getting ready.  They know how to do it right with the traditional colors of Easter.
These people show up every year to sell their little pieces of art, all made from palms. This woman has been coming into the city from the Mixe, every year for eighteen years.
Just a small portion of the things they create.
I have a cross on my door made with this incredible, complex and delicate work
There' still time to get yours.
Tomorrow, San Antonino!!!!
