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.

Total bull - as always

There are tradeoffs no matter where you live.  I miss lots of the action in the city and almost all of the night life.  Still, living in the country has its advantages, like this field I pass everyday.  I love how the clouds drape themselves on the mountains.  Most days, these days, they just sit there long after the normal burn off time.
And in this field there were some steer (eieio)
And one of those steers found a snack in a nearly cleared patch. 
He is noshing on Sansevieria or snake plant or mother-in-law tongue, which I explained to him was toxic.  He did not seem to care.
But if that is not a guilty look, I don't know what is.
