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.

La Boda de Sergio y Viginia

Yesterday was the wedding.  It was a long day and I arrived late at 7AM and left early at 11PM.  Again, I do not know how they do it, the amount of time and energy expended.  However, what a total blast with so much to drink in.  I could write a different post about various aspects.  It would probably take four or five just to document the food and another five or ten to talk about the traditions.  But for now, I need to head back for another fiesta, the big party at Sergio's family's, the day after celebration.  Then there is the day after the day after party and so on.  In another week, it will all wind down.  I have some great shots. but it will take a few days to go through the close to 1400 photos and cull the ones to get printed.

With a band leading them, Sergio y Virginia walk to the church, a mere two or three kilometers into the village.
