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.

Street Art cont.... good to be back

The rains continue and continue and continue.  What a year!  I have garden photos from before and I want to take ones to show how much things have grown, but it is simply too wet to shoot.  I did manage to whack back some incredible weeds.  With all this rain, they are thriving and producing some incredible specimens.  Man, I can grow those weeds.  What a crop.  Same in Boston.  Coincidence? Really the garden here is full of flowers and good things to eat, but for now, street art.

I love this stuff, always so vibrant, colorful and meaningful..... and subtle.

Incidentally, from the top photo, a "bichito" is a little insect and the talk is by an entimologist and is for kids.

Here is hoping you are making it through the rains okay, and a belated BDay

Rains, hell - hoping you made it through the MUD. The news up here is about the mountain village 4 hours from Oaxaca - I wonder if that's by burro or foot? Your garden still above water and above dirt?
