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.

Earthquakes, hurricanes and floods, oh my....

Well, I do not recommend anyone experiencing an 8.2 earthquake in the middle of the night... or at any time.  It was long and strong and scary.  There is lots of damage in various area and Juchitan really got hit badly with terrible destruction.  The death count is rising.  Luckily, I'm fine and so is the house I'm renting, but wow.... please, ya basta... enough already.  The earthquake comes after lots of rain and flooding.  Lots of areas have been completely inundated.  It is going to take a while to recover from all of this.
