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.

Birthday Blues

You would think that because the city is in the midst of a birthday bash, it would be free of protests in the zocalo.  Things look pretty quiet on this side.
But you would be wrong.  This is the other side.
There appear to be a couple of groups protesting. 
This is the entrance to the Governor's Palace.
I still think that Oaxaca is ahead of the curve with all these protests.  Someday it may be happening around you, but I suppose things will have to get worse first until you reach the "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore" moment.
