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.

Lead in to the Procession of Silence

Last evening the Procesion de Silencio wound its way through the streets of Oaxaca.  Much more to come on that but for now..... 
We got there early to watch the set up and the gathering of the various participants.  The police always lead the way and their bikes were polished to a mighty fine shine.
If you look closely you can see one of the fun shots of the day.  That is Santo Domingo in the background.  ¡Viva Oaxaca!
They really liked the shot.

Thanks for the photos. I had to leave Oaxaca on April 4 just before the Easter stuff peaked so your blog is keeping me in the loop. I am counting the days until I return (85).

I love that you blog with frequency. I can always count on seeing something new.
