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.

After all the parties are over

Whew!  What a week!  It will take a few days to recover and go through photos and video.  Plus, I have to head into that alternate universe known as El Norte to vote tomorrow.  Right now I am like these folks, exhilarated, but a tad bit wiped out. 
Make that, totally wiped out.
Nuf' said.
However, if there was more Muertos celebrations tomorrow, I would be there with bells on.
You really have to come to Muertos in Oaxaca at least once in your life.  It just gets better and better.  I am so ready for next year already.

Maybe you don't have to wait till next year Chris. In many villages they do the comparsas all over again a week later. En ocho dias... if you're back by then.
