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.

Bread and chocolate

Bread and chocolate are traditional offerings all year long, but especially for Muertos.  I've heard that the price of eggs skyrockets for the week before, as everyone is baking and making the special breads that will be lovingly placed on altars.
The chocolate is often hand made, so rich and tasty.
The breads come in all shapes and sizes.
The proper way to eat any bread here is to dip/dunk pieces in rich hot chocolate, which can be made with either milk or water.
This is my daily morning bun, small and they toast up very nicely. And here they are in a classic Tlacolula basket.
Just normal every day rolls.... mmmmmmm.
¿Tiene hambre?
