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.

Una semana

Ay!  It all seems so surreal, but nicely so.  One week ago I was sitting the Comedor Colon in Etla, under the watchful eyes of Zapata and the boys, waiting for breakfast. 
This was the view from my morning constitutional.
Then this.... that is Monte Alban with Atzompa at two o'clock and if you look closely you can see mi casa at about one thirty.
Those mountains were replaced with mountains of snow here in New England, but happily, there is a wonderful touch of spring in the air, it is almost 60 outside and sunny, so I get to experience one of the best things about a long brutal winter, Spring Fever.  Life is sweet.  However, it is Wednesday, my market day in Etla and somehow, I do not think I will be seeing this. 
We are so spoiled and so lucky to have such fresh and tasty produce.  They say they have fresh fruit here in Boston, but don't tell them... they don't.

I bought some kiwis today, but I suspect that they are made of plastic.
