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 floodin' down in Texas....

We've had serious flooding in many areas here in the last few days.  There was two feet of water covering the Pan-American Highway just down the road from me... and half the road is being repaved and was down to dirt, so now one big mud pit that the earth-movers try to work in.  It's ugly.  But nothing like poor Texas..... 50 inches of rain is predicted, more than they normally get in a year.  And twenty seven years ago today, SRV died.  Be sure so check out the behind the back playing near the end.
On the plus side when the dry season has nary a drop for months, it is a rare sight to see water flowing under bridges and the ancient aqueduct.
