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.

Tehuantepec Represente!

As I mentioned in the previous post, Oaxaca always has a varied and expansive public art scene.  Almost every neighborhood has its own versions and 'tis the season to let it all go.
This installation of figures in the style of the dancers from Tehuantepec is right across from the sandia pieces. 
It's a made to order photo spot with Santo Domingo in the back. 
Someone in the government/tourist/arts world sure knows what they are doing.  More mañana.

These are great! What R they made of

So it seems you are getting out and about a bit more. Here in El Norte the " S### is hitting the fan" again. 27,000 new cases in NY yesterday!! ( and those are just the reported cases-lot's of people are self testing at home and most likely not reporting their results) I know 7 people who tested positive this week! 6 R vexed and just real sick at home-1 unvaxed in intensive care in critical condition. It's getting scary again. Just in time for the holidays! careful out there!

I hardly go in to the city at all, but I needed coffee. I remain overly cautious, but I'm still kickin'. Stay safe... and sane.
