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.

Fields of Dreams...

This is one of my favorite days of the year, the day when flowers are harvested in preparation fo El Dia de los Muertos.  The fields near my house are overflowing with cempasuchil (marigolds) and terciopelo rojo (celosia or cockscomb). 
It's amazing how they seem to peak, perfectly timed to be picked. 
And somehow, the growers do it every year even through the weather conditions vary widely.  I wasn't the only one enjoying the blossoms.
Bees are loving it, but odds are, they will all be gone tomorrow.
And away they go...
More mañana....
