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.

Good to be back....

My luggage and I were finally reunited after three absolutely horrible days of being apart.  There was a bit of intrigue and some tense moments as it was driven around the city from one wrong address to the next, but finally... the cheddar cheese and crunchy peanut butter were set free.

So today, it was a nice walk through the city basking in the warmth.  It has been cold here.  The tender plants in San Sebastian got nailed and it is only the first week in December.  Last year we had a fairly hard freeze, but it was later.   However, the sun was out and it felt great to reacquaint myself with the city.  This guy was way up there restoring a church.  Look at that face. 

How can you not feel happy seeing that.
