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.

Caminando - Walking

Oaxaca can be just so much fun to simply walk around. Certain days the place radiates happiness. Yesterday, the Fourth of July, was just such a day and it had nothing to do with El Norte's activities. No, it was a celebration of something different. The city was happily and proudly strutting its stuff.The faces of these kids and their mother, a guy soaking up the sun while the words on the side of the cathedral demand complete freedom for a political prisoner.The zocalo is still filled with protesters and vendors. This from the side of one of their tents.Construction continues on M. Bravo, but the work is going quickly. I bet it is done in time for the Guelaguetza in two weeks.Waiting for Godot under one of Oaxaca's most photographed senoritas.
