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.

Truer words were never spoke

Just going through the shots from last week.  We visited so many different places, it is hard to keep track of which shot is from where.  Like this shot, which was taken as we stopped to try to figure out just exactly where the heck we were.  It turned out to be San Pablo Huixtepec.  My eye is always drawn to graffiti and invariably there is an electric meter in the shot.
This is a common phrase, normally reading, "Los verdaderos amigos se lastiman con la verdad para no herirse con la mentira." which translates to "True friends hurt each other with truths so as not to hurt each other with lies."
