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.

Welcome to Spring - Bienvenidos Primavera

Spring has sprung and in celebration of the vernal equinox, the area is flooded with cuteness in that all the little kids dress up and parade through the streets.
They do not mess around.  There are so many cute kids that it can melt the coldest heart.
There must have been five or six separate parades that all ended up in the zocalo at around ten in the morning.  There were lions and tigers
and lots of bees, birds, bugs and fairies.
OMG! Now he's eating his mother.  The horror!
Lots of amazing looks and costumes.  This one is a work of art as it is made of folded paper.
Ahhhhh..... spring.......

The connection to nature seems so much healthier than the Halloween monsters and vampires.
