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.

Anonymous Nuerotics?

Every year, murals and signs appear for symposia entitled "Neuroticos Anonimos."  I guess it must be some sort of self-awareness and self-help thing.  Well, thanks very much, but I have no problem with my neurosis, but I am conflicted about being the center of the universe and remaining anonymous. 
At any rate, these events seem to get lots of coverage and I am not sure why this TV crew was outside the cathedral doing a shoot with Neurotics Anonymous posters on the sides of the tent, when I noticed the figure in the background.  The juxtapositioning was sobering.
