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.

Heavy weather...

The weather here can be different just a kilometer or two away.  Today, there was serious flooding in the southern part of the city and yet here, ten km to the north, almost nothing.  The mountains have a lot to do with the weather patterns and there are big ones just behind me to the east.  They also cut this region off from the city.
Many times I can see the rains way off to the west and they don't make it over this way.  However, when they come from the east, over those mountains, they can be fierce.  And the mountains make for micro-climates, one side of the hill may be lush and the other side, bone dry.
