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.

'Tis the season...

I love watching the weather move in.  At its simplest, Oaxaca has two seasons, rainy and dry.
This is a bit too simple given Oaxaca's incredibly diverse geography, beach, coastal plain, rain forest, high desert, desert, mountains and fertile valleys.
We are coming to the end of a strange rainy season with heavy rains every afternoon and evening.  It has been dry in many areas and every drop is a blessing.  There are also such things as micro-climates, where it rains in one area and only a few kilometers away, things are dry as bone.
This was yesterday.  It was pouring with blue skies overhead the the sun shining in the distance.
