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.

That's how many earthquakes we had this morning.... These shots snagged from FB.
And last night, just down the road from me after a very intense rain/hail storm.
Resulting in this....
I, like so many, am fine, but am shell-shocked.  I am continually amazed by the Mexican people and how they respond to these horrible events.  And I am saddened that the official US response to all the hurricanes and now, these earthquakes, has been almost non existent.  Puerto Rico, the islands of the Caribbean, Houston, Florida..... I think I'll take a knee and I hope many others will as well.

And tonight I still keep feeling the earth tremble, or is it all in my rattled head?
