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.

2501 Emigrantes come to the city... and keep coming

 Slowly, but surely, each day, the life-size sculptures continue to arrive and line the street.  2501 human figures is one heck of a lot of art.  I wonder if they are going to continue down Alcala all the way to the zocalo.
Stay tuned.... and scroll down for an earlier post about Alejandro Santiago's "2501 Emigrantes."

It's really impressive to see how many people that actually is, it's a great statement and art piece. Thank you for continuing to show us as more are brought in.
