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.

Julio - Best month of the year?

May is very quiet in Oaxaca with not much happening.  June is much of the same, but July.... woo, woo.... it all starts happening in quick succession.
This week there are the convites and danzantes in Teotitlan del Valle.
There is the upcoming Feria de los Moles, always a gastronomic treat.
The Feria de Hongos in Cuajimoloyas,
The Feria de Queso y Quesillo in Reyes Etla
With a local intimate guelaguetza.
The Feria de Tejate y Tamal
and of course, the biggie, the Guelaguetzas.
Plus a free concert by Lila Downs on July 25.
Here's the schedule which is by no means complete.... there is so much to do..... you should be here.
