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 getting close.... mas muerteadas

Every dog must have its day.  Muertos is right around the corner and the city is crowded with hotel occupancy at about 70%.  Of course, the teachers, moto-taxistas and transportation workers have been blocking the roads and Seccion XXII has taken over the zocalo... oh, and there's been a trash pickup strike, but other than that... it's muerteada time and they are occurring all over the place. This one is in San Agustin Etla for the mother of all muerteadas.
Just down the hill, San Sebastian Etla,
And there is this one in nearby Santiago Etla
It's in the details.....
The Etlas all seem like they are having one and so it only makes sense that there is one in the hub, la Villa de Etla
I plan to try and hit a few of them, but they are too many. They're everywhere....Party on, Garth.
