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.

Hiding away in Escondido

To quote the great Max Bialyistock, (Zero Mostel, please) "That's it, baby, when you've got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!"

So after braving massive street marches, a long sinuous seven hour moonlit drive through the mountains, we found ourselves in Puerto Escondido. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

The sun, the sand, the warmth, the waves, the seafood, the mango empanadas.... I dare not go on for fear of being too cruel. Iconic Puerto EscondidoOther than to say, on the way back we picked up guanabanas and several kinds of bananas fresh off the tree and some wonderful honey. The honey changes every two months depending on what is flowering everything from mango to coffee.

You are correct--too cruel.(Beach envy here) Glad you are all there safe and sound. Where are you staying?

Stayed at the Santa Fe which was very nice. Great vegetarian/seafood restaurant. Back in Oaxaca now.
