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.

This beauty from out in Mezcalandia,. Yes, the whole world is watching and fortunately, people have a good grasp on reality and a good sense of humor.

I have never commented before but I love your blog and the photos you take.

I also have never been to Oaxaca either, but I have spent time in Yucatán (mostly Chemuyil) and Chihuahua (Ciudad Juárez).

Anyway Christopher, I LOVE your photo of the el pendejo mural, but not sure what the significance is of los conejos.

Also I wanted to know if you mind if I put this photo on my Instagram page?

Not sure why my comment with my name and location ended with mural. LOL

Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you enjoy the blog... I do, too. And sure you can use the photo. It's from the Mal de Amor palenque.

Thank you for the info. I did a search and found several Instagram pages and a couple of Facebook pages from Mal de Amor Palenque OR Palenque Mal de Amor.

I am assuming this is a business in Oaxaca?

If so, do you have a link for their official page/pages?

All I can find are the FB pages.
