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.

It's an art...

The city is still vibrating from the guelaguetzas, but most of the tourists have gone and so the zocalo is filled with locals.  It's always fun to check out all the action, the musicians, the vendors, there is always something.  A couple of days ago there was a group of portraits artists and caricaturists who were doing a brisk business.  Whaddya think?
They had lots of takers and lots of spectators.
All of this was just opposite all the cafes and there was lots of interest.  So nice to see artists doing their thing right out in the open.
Even off a phone photo.
Ain't it all great?
