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.

Street scenes...

It's piñata time.  This one is maybe two meters in diameter and is hanging in a busy intersection as an advertisement and enticement for the maker just down the side street.

The zocalo is bedecked with poinsettias making for a pleasant place to work.

Flowers.  There are always flowers.

Of course, what one sees depends on where the street is.  This from Los Reyes.

Always such great photos, I particularly like the flowers... "Hauling Beauty" perhaps.

I also love the photo of the street vender carrying flowers on his back!
