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.

If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

El Dia del Taxistas

On my morning errand run, I passed the florist just down the road from me and the place was hoppin'.  Ah yes, it's El Dia del Taxistas and all the local drivers were getting decorations for their rides.
There will be celebrations everywhere, I mean, everywhere.  Many taxis will be much more elaborately festooned than these, however, it is another day in which Oaxaqueños express happiness and pride.
Very tasteful.  Anyone for Tlaltinango?
After parading, all the drivers will be off to fiestas, with lots of music, food and drink and soon it will be el dai del no taxistas.
Party on, Garthino.
