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.

The eyes of Reyes Etla

The eyes have it in this shot from the guelaguetza in nearby Reyes Etla.  They are those of one of the dancers.  Many more shots to come.  It was a fantastic event which followed a full weekend of fantastic events.  It will take a day or two to get caught up.  Until then another feast for the eyes.

Objects, like people, are much more attractive and alive when they are not perfect or trying to reach perfection. I like the fact that you can see the uneven stitches on the headdress and the rough edges of the decorations.
