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.

More hard work all by hand

More of the incredible work ethic demonstrated daily by folks here.  These men have been repaving this street for a few months.  Well, they are doing the sidewalks and the adjoining little park, too, so it is a sizable undertaking.  I watched them chip out the old stone with chisels and hammers and now they are laying the new paving stones.
 What a job!
This is the Alcala, the pedestrian walkway, normally the street that the guelaguetza's desfiles or parades follow.  It will be interesting to see if they can finish in time.
 The sidewalk pavers waiting to be placed.
They just finished Garcia Vigil, one street over.  This is what the completed project looks like.
