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.

Shirt shots

I am always checking out people's shirts and have gotten much better at just asking if I can take a quick shot.  They run the gamut and each one tells a unique story, which I have to imagine as I look at the shots.
¿ Habla Ingles?  Of course, the answer was, "no."
 Jajajajaja... illegal alien.......
Who knows?  Kid with a slingshot and a camera must mean something....
As I say, I am always on the look for good shirt and I like the juxtaposition in these shots.
I like how the statue's lace cuff looks like a shawl on the woman in the background and how the rosary beads seem to be hanging from her hands although she was really just checking her phone.
However, the message is what matters..... the message is the medium? 
Shirts are the medium and the messages....... get delivered.
