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.

Roof update

Well, it looks like the new roof will be done for the upcoming Guelaguetza.  It really is a stunning structure, isn't it?  I wonder how people will react to sitting in the shade.  Used to be a very long, hot day under the sun.  Great hat sales.  I am sure the dancers will appreciate it.

Those tiny dots on top of the left dome are five workers.

And tickets are now on sale everywhere.  I think it is all gonna work out.
