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 Imigrantes come to the city... cont

Alejandro Santiago's installation of "2501 Emigrantes"  continues to fill the streets.  I love that the sculptures have now become an everyday part of the street scene.  Normal life surrounds them.
One sees all sorts of interactions and tableaus,  From ships that pass in the night

to couples

Even the famous, that is Francisco Toledo, Oaxaca most famous patron and artist.

Looks like he is leading some away.

Always trying to get the interesting angle or shot.
"Hey, Chris, whatcha doin' whatcha doing???"

Such a nice pup.  A real waggler.
