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.

Early start to market day in Etla

It feels so good to be back at the market in Etla.  Actually, even though I have been back only a few days, I have already shopped there a couple of time.  However, this is the first Wednesday I have been back and Wednesday is market day in Etla.  I got there nice and early.  It does not get any better than this.
No wonder I always feel like I am missing something when I shop in the States.
The meat looked every bit as fresh and good.
I never buy chicken in the States.  It is either too expensive or tastes like cardboard.  And here is the reason I am so fussy.  The best and freshest chicken in the market. 
This huge breast was $70 MP ($4.50 US).  Soon to be a few meals and some good chicken stock.
It is so good to be back!
