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.

State of the art.

I gave my sister blogger, spixl, a ride out to San Bartolo Coyotepec to attend the opening of a children's art exhibition last week.  She has a nice post up about the event, so check it out.
It is always fun to see kids and their art, here or anywhere, but this was a special event and there was much joy and excitement in the air.  As one who use to be involved in these sorts of things regularly, I particularly liked this display that had hundreds of pictures in it and swam through the color spectrum.
 And while everyone was getting this shot.
I was getting this one.
Great art, but I was checking out the food.  They had the traditional.
Some healthy things.
And some not so healthy things.
Why on sticks?
Well, I don't know whose idea it was, but it sure looks like they intended to use this little fountain and have the kids deep things into the red liquids.  Hmmmm.... I not sure how well that worked out.  What could go wrong?  Unfortunately, we will never know as we left before the eating commenced.
But we were there for the art, right?
