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.

If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

Muertos arrives

After all the turmoil, all the marches, protests and blockades, finally the city has exploded in the best of ways... with happiness and celebration.  Yes, El Dia de los Muertos has arrived along with thousands of tourists and the place is hoppin', the night filled with some mighty fine looks.  Father and daughter.
How about these great faces?  Father and.... hmmm.... I'm not really sure.
There is so much to do, one has to pick and choose and then just go for it.  It's going to be a fun couple of days.  People know how to do it right here.
As always, they were dancing in the streets.
She looks like she has seen something horrible....

The hat on the baby's head is a minion. (from the movie "Despicable Me") Similar to the Incredible Hulk variation.

Hmmm.. I think it's rather Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc.
