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.

It's a big day in the city as the Guelaguezta, the big dance festival is about to begin. The place is hoppin' with lots of tourists from Mexico and a few from the States and Europe. There is a desfile or parade late this afternoon. There is also a heavy police presence in case there are any attempt to disrupt any events.
But first... a little graffiti. June 14, 2006 was the day that Gov. Ulises Ruis sent in riot police to break up protests. It was a critical day and it led to the economic disaster that has befallen this cultural treasure of a place.
