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.

It's all relative...

I'm back in the saddle again, back in Oaxaca.  When I left Boston Sunday morning, it was 11 F.  It had been unusually cold and snowy almost my entire stay.  Of course, at soon as I left the temps soared to near 60.  When I woke up in the foothills of the mountains behind my house here in Oaxaca, it was 52 F.  I had been cold in Boston and now I'm cold here.  Houses in New England all have some sort of heating, but here, no one does and the cement construction really holds the cold.
There will be lows in the 40's later this week. But this morning, both are the same temp and I'm sure I would feel warm in Boston, but it feels cold here. (That's Boston on top.)
