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.

Getting ready for..... Toys!

Tomorrow is El Dia de Tres Reyes, Three Kings Day, the day that most children get presents.  Christmas Day was so last year and really, unlike in El Norte, not the traditional day for gift giving.  There a bins set up in lots of businesses collecting toys, but the mother of them all is this great outpouring set up in front of the cathedral on the Almeda.
 So close and yet so far.....
I am not sure exactly how it all works, but I am sure there are lots of happy kids with new toys and somehow I think many of them are street kids.  A good thing for sure.
Tomorrow?  Off to Tres Reyes Etla, of course.
