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.

Hey Chris
We saw lila at Carnegie Hall in NYC on Tues. She rocked the house!!! 3 encores to a whooping and cheering crowd. 1st encore was with a 15 person mariachi band! Then her band came back then finally she came out by herself and sang a song of thanks to the crowd-no band. Wonderful show! Fantastic stage presence
