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.
This time in San Sebastian Etla just down the road from San Agustin.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Ultima Llanada

It's hot.  I mean, it is really hot.  It has been a long day.  You are tired and you are running to catch the bus, but alas, you don't make it and it drives off leaving you in a cloud of exhaust and with this wonderful sight,
Okay, I thought I knew what this meant - the last thread - the final straw - but I see than llanada is not in my dictionary.  I know that llano means "plain,"  but I need help with this one.  Anyone?  Anyone? Bueller?  I am hanging by a thread.....

From Laura, my Spanish teacher:

"Pienso que hay un error y debería ser: 'Última llamada' para inscribirse en la Universidad Autónoma Benito Juárez de Oaxaca."

"Porque 'llanada' está relacionada con el campo sin colinas, llano..."
