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 Art cont.... never fails... part 76

One thing about this place that is so much fun to follow is the street art and graffiti.  Often I will drive by something and say to myself, "I've gotta walk back and check that out." 
After a while, everthing starts to look like art and that ain't a bad thing at all. 
I wonder does this stuff exist in other cities?  Anyone?  Bueller?
I do see it out in the villages, but the city is really where it's at.

Thanks, Christopher for all your posts. I read every one. The next best thing to being there!

In other Mexican cites I have been (Guanajuato, Zacatecas, Queretaro, Puebla) there is a lot of grafitti, but of a very banal sort. None of these cites has the type of grafitti that in my opinion rises to the level of art and shows the creativity that Oaxaca has.

Looks like the work of one of the young artists of ASARO.
