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.

Monte Alban is green!

The rains have come very early this year.  It seems that every evening one can hear thunder and see lightning somewhere over the wide valleys.  It may not rain every day, but the rains have come often enough so that the countryside has awakened and is greening up nicely.  Normally, Monte Alban is brown, brown, brown in March, but look at these shots. 

It is already green and gorgeous...

and, as always, cosmic.

And yes, I know the weather is screwed up everywhere with horrible storms and drought and cold, but here we have lucked out for the time being.  Heck, it is supposed to be almost 90 in Boston on Tuesday.  In mid April?  Good luck to the Boston Marathoners!   That is hotter than it will be here.
