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.

It was sixty degrees in Boston today, so I enjoyed the day working in the yard, prepping for winter.  I planted this Japanese maple years ago.  Now it is a tall beauty.  And the pachysandra that I planted twenty years ago and that nurseries sell as an expensive ground cover, now has to be treated like a weed, as it has taken over what should be paths.  Normally, I dig it up and give it to neighbors, but there is just way too much of it this year.  This is just another lesson that gardening teaches us.... sometimes even the best of intentions get out of control. riches can turn into trash, sometimes you have to reassess and get in there whack things back.

At least I am not doing this.  This was happening yesterday as I jet-packed over the Mass Pike... I mean, as I walked over the Pike.  Happy Thanksgiving!
