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.

Ah.... Etla

It is that time of year.  I go from fruit to fruit.  "Mmm.... this is the best mango I have ever had.  "Mmmmm..... this is the best melon I have ever had."  "Mmmmm..... this is the best pineapple I have ever had."  It just keeps going.

I went early to the market in nearby Etla.  I still maintain that it is one of the very best markets and not just because of the cheese for which it is so famous.  I am blessed to live so close and to have vendors there who I can now call friends.

However, the truth of the matter is, look at this stuff from this morning!

Damn it!

Squash blossoms and pitayas. Two items impossible to get anywhere around here in Toronto.

And look at the size of the watermelons!.
