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.

Today we went to the nearby tianguis looking for a car to buy. Tianguis are common throughout Mexico, set up in a specific place on a specific day each week. There are all sorts of these markets, ranging from the market days in the villages to huge ones in the DF that sell one type of item, like automotive. In today's case, it was the one for cars in Santa Rosa. The cars for sale are lined up on both sides of the road and people just walk up and down scoping out the wheels. There are cars in all shapes and sizes and all kinds of condition. I should have taken pictures, but I was in full shopping mode and could only contemplate one thing at a time. I did not buy, but I came close. I need another week of research and thought about what I really need. That beamer looked nice, but how will it do in the villages and on all those topes? A tricked out VW bug? An '84 Ford pickup? Any suggestions?
Oh, why the picture? You figure it out.
