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.

Uh, what's up, doc?

Yesterday was the last of the carrots harvest day.  They keep very well in the ground, but I am prepping the soil for the next planting, so out they came.  I planted some various colored carrots in addition to the normal orange ones and, as you can see, they did quite well.
This one had to have been a foot long and at three inches across, a big fat healthy plant.  I was pleasantly surprised as tasty it was.  There is really nothing like the taste of a carrot when it just comes out of the ground.  The orange ones were normal sized.
I expected the big ones to be woody, but they were perfect, hard and crisp with a wonderful sweet flavor.
I think just that one will be enough for at least six good sized salads.  Here was the first with the carrots, avocado, onion, tomato, oliv oil, white balsamic vinegar and blue cheese.  Not too tasty.  I think I will have another tonight.... and tomorrow and tomorrow.
