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.

Cazadores de Tesoros

Most of the TV I watch is in Spanish, but every now and then, I see something in English with subtitles in Español.  It's a great way to learn the language and expand my vocabulary.  And so it is with the History Channel's "American Pickers" or as it is known in Mexico, "Cazadores de Tesoros" (Treasure Hunters.) In it, two guys from Iowa, Frank and Mike, travel across the country in search of valuable antiques.  Some of the things that always excite them are old signs of any sort.  They pay good money for them.  I bet they would love this one from just done the road from mi casa.
