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....

It is always there and always changing.

The words obviously are by someone other than the artist.  I dunno... "born to be killers"  Is my translation correct?  Whazit all mean?

Asesinadas is killed and feminine, not killers. I don´t presume to know what it is referring to. It could be a vegetarian making a statement about the cows (vacas are feminine) being born to be butchered. However, the image looks like a bull (toro=masculine noun) so while someone could also be making a statement about bulls being slaughtered in the bullring, then the adjective would have to be asesinados, with an o. So, as you say, its open to speculation.

Favorite spots? The streets around Carmen Alto.

@lani.... Gracias. Very interesting. Your knowledge of Spanish is much better than mine. As with the posters, I will have to ask around and see if i can get some answers.
