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.
¡Soy consciente de todas las tradiciones del Internet!

Your table(cloth) is waiting...

And it better be big and round. This had, maybe, a four meter diameter.
On the reverse of the display, one in red.
These from an exhibition, La Piel de Mi Raza, in San Bartolo Coyotepec at the Museo Estatal de Arte Popular Oaxaca.
The hupiles from the Mazatec and Chinantec peoples are amazing.
Months of work go into each of these and the detail is remarkable.
Be sure to check out Casa Colibri's post which is more extensive and informative.
