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

It is a beautiful day in Oaxaca.  On my side of the city, to the north, the Etlas, we have had three, count em. three days with rain in the afternoon.  The countryside is greening up quickly and all my plants are going, "Ahhhhhh, finally."  And seeing as though this house has a rain collecting system, my cistern has a little more water in it and I am going, "Ahhhh, finally."  Maybe I will make it through the dry season only buying one pipa or water tank truck.

So it is T-shirt weather, like it isn't always T-shirt weather here, so here are a few new shots from the collection.  "Watch out, I'm dangerous."
Twenty years since the Zapatistas rose up.  Maybe it is time for a new emergence.
I love these "What the heck is that?"  shirts.
Should I know who this is?  I like the Pats logo on what was, no doubt, a Brady jersey.
The great thing is that with all the T-shirts to see, there are always outfits like this on the streets to drink in.
¡Viva Oaxaca!
