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.

Santiago Apostal

Every church is different.  Just compare this spectacular edifice to the one I just posted from San Dionisio.  The painted churches in the Ocotlan area are really something, well worth the visit. 

It would be easy to see three of the best in Santa Ana Zegache, Ocotlan and this beauty in Santiago Apostal.

From a distance it looks as if it may be tiles or large bricks, but it is painted. 

Wonderful details. 

The pineapple is a symbol of welcome.

The belltower.
