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.

More arte from Etla...

Here are a few more of the pieces installed in the median on the way to Etla starting with this totem by Alberto Aragon Reyes.
Wonderful work on the face
 In the detail of the inserts.
This tall glazed ceramic tower has wonderful color and texture... a bit hard to see at 70 kph.
I had to stop to get the full depth of each panel.
Some dramatic and provocative pieces.
And some with whimsy.
It is worth the drive and to stop and check out some of the detail.
There's always the market on Wednesday and the Comedor Colon everyday for some of the very best food around.
