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.

Danza de la Pluma - Teotitlan del Valle 2014

I have promised the dancers in Teotitlan del Valle a video and at long last, here it is.  It certainly helps to have new software and fast internet, but really the key was taking the time to list and categorize the many video clips I've shot since this group started in 2013.  They will dance for another year to finish out their three year commitment.  You will notice the changing outfits, as I think I have seen them maybe six or seven times at least.  I love seeing how much the little girls have changed since they started.
