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.

Little bit of heaven

The ceramics mercado in nearby Atzompa appears to be under major renovation and I had a craving for something to hang on the walls outside so....  It was off to the east, to San Sebastian Tutla just on the other side of the city.  This place is the mother lode of all things ceramic, #23 on the Carreta Int.
The place goes on and on, with thousands of things from which to choose.  I was tempted by lots of pieces and I made my choices quickly.  I am moving most everything out of pots and into the ground so I did not fall for any of these beauties.  Still... I do have some nice palms that would looks amazing in them.
The place is a dream come true.... and really good prices, too.  The gerente, Eleazar CarreƱo, is always welcoming and very friendly.
