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.

Atzompa - Not the best day to visit

This was the view of Atzompa early this afternoon. 
That's the archeological site at the very top behind the veil of smoke.
You can see it is a large area.  I hope everyone is OK.  I know a few folks up there and will go and check tomorrow or the next day.
These fires are pretty common these days, the countryside is so dry and crispy.  Normally, they stay under control.  In fact, fire is the preferred method for clearing agricultural fields.  I am totally on the other side of that debate, organic material by the tons worked into the soil.
