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.

Mexico Announces Completion Of Transparent Border Wall

Hot on the heels of President Trump’s innovation to make his wall transparent – so people will not be struck without warning by bags of drugs thrown from the other side – Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has proudly announced that he has not only stolen Trump’s brilliant idea for an invisible border wall but has already constructed one.
“I am proud to announce the completion of our border wall stretching from Tijuana on the Pacific coast all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.”
Peña Nieto said he decided to build a border wall to keep out U.S. militia like the Oath Keepers and made it transparent so his fellow Mexicans could continue to enjoy the spectacle of hard-bellied middle-aged Americans playing dress-up to mask their personal inadequacies.
“It is most entertaining and we would hate to lose it.”
Construction of the wall was completed in record time and Mexican architects give full credit to Trump for his crucial insight.
“After he came up with the idea to make it invisible everything fell into place and we thought if he wants to make us pay for it anyway why not just build it ourselves.”

Once the design was presented to the Mexican President, he was happy to pay all the material and labor costs involved to prove Mexico could do something Trump has so far only managed to talk about.
“We invite all Americans to come to the border and not see this modern engineering marvel for themselves.
