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.

Itza Famiy Affair

I am always going off on how good the food is at our favorite restaurant, Comidor Colon in nearby Etla.  Today, it was mole negro and carne in salsa roja with beans and rice.  Out of this world.  And normally, I always take pictures of the food, but today it's the people or some of them, it's a big family.  Hermanas, sisters, Gregoria and Guadelupe, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and good food on the table.
In the side shack, with the comals and the carbon, a cousin.
Another cousin arranging paper flowers. 
Look at that bench, bricks on top of tree trunk pieces.  I do not think it gets moved regularly.
And the food?  Simply the best!!!! You have to go.

Love this, Chris. Things on my mind: una tlayuda, un chile relleno, costillas en salsa verde, pan de yema con chocolate. Must. stop. now.
