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.

The Big Time - Los Danzantes de Teotitlan del Valle

Oh, what a feeling!  Los danzantes de la pluma from Teotitlan del Valle are in tomorrow's official Guelaguezta.  In fact, they are first on the program and I know the place will just explode with joy and pride.  Blogger buddy Shannon (check out her post) and I are such great fans and supporters of this exceptional group, we are just as proud and exited as they are... well almost.
They all looked pretty psyched.
It was wonderful to see and greet them at yesterday's desfile of parade of all the regional delegations of dancers.  It is an incredibly festive time and a photographer's dream.  Right, guys?
Here's how the guys looked as they got ready to dance along the entire parade route, where they would be celebrated by, maybe 100,000 cheering people.
Do they look ready?
And they danced, too...
We'll be watching tomorrow.  Be sure to check out Shannon's post over at Casita Colibri
