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.

Muerteada art... Barrio San Jose

This corner in San Agustin Etla always has a great mural announcing the upcoming muerteada which starts on Nov. 1st and ends on the 2nd.  I'm not sure why it was partially covered, but a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do to get the shot... sorta.  So I lifted the canvas... and this shot has it all, the bells and mirrors, the masks and costumes and the result of dancing for hours and a little mezcal.
And tubas!  Lots of tubas!
It will be fantastic... as always
I'll post the mural later from arch rival, San Agustin, which is right up the hill.
