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.

By any other name...

This is Myztezyz, also known as Mistico, Sin Cara, Astro Boy, Astro Boy I, Dr. Karonte Jr., Komachi.
Wrestling, like soap operas or telenovelas, has a whole different place in Mexican culture.  Lucha Libre is huge all through Mexico, but I know nothing about it.  Lots of folks like the whole mask thing and vendors sell them everywhere.  I just see the posters like this one and wonder.... Somehow this guy does not look that scary to me.
Something about the kitty cat mouth....
Great names on the same bill.... Lalo el Loco!!!
