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.

Beto y Enrique

This made me smile from today's paper.
From El Imparcial:
La revista estadounidense The New Yorker ha escogido una manera muy particular para celebrar los fallos de la Corte Suprema de esta semana que refuerzan las parejas homosexuales: sacando del closet, una vez más, a la pareja más famosa de Plaza Sésamo, Beto y Enrique.

En su próxima portada, Enrique, visto de espaldas, reposa su cabeza sobre el hombro de Beto en un gesto de intimidad de pareja mientras ambos miran la televisión, donde aparecen posando los nueve jueces de la Corte Suprema que el jueves dictaron dos fallos históricos en favor de los homosexuales, al reforzar los derechos de los matrimonios gay en el país.
Rough translation:

The American magazine The New Yorker has chosen a very particular way to celebrate this week Supreme Court rulings that reinforce homosexual couples: out of the closet, once again, to the most famous pair of Sesame Street, Beto y Enrique.

In their next home, Enrique, seen from the back, rests his head on the shoulder of Beto in a gesture of intimacy of couple while both watch television, where are posing the nine judges of the Supreme Court which on Thursday issued two historic failures in favour of homosexuals, by strengthening the rights of the country gay marriages.
