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.

Mexico Makes the Record Books

 Check out these stories on Tim Johnson's Mexico Unmasked on McClatchy. 
Hmmm.... another record in the making?  The Guardian's story on Mexico City's trash problem.  How the city deals with these problems will be a harbinger for many other cities.  David Lida in his book, "First Stop in the New World"  maintains that as Mexico City goes, so go we all.  It is a fascinating read.

Images are examples of the never-ending stream of street art and graffiti.
