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.

Light Show on the Cathedral

They are showing this absolutely amazing bit of digital magic every night in the zocalo.

Each section is ten minutes long.

that IS amazing, computer graphics I would assume, but so creative and beautiful use of the iconic visuals for Oaxaca.
Is it being projected from somewhere in the plaza in front of the church?
Is it seasonal or is this a display that will stay all year?

It is seasonal. They showed it for the Guelaguetza week and Navidad. It really is exceptionally well done. It is projected from a control booth in the plaza directly in from the the cathedral.
