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.

Mmmm mmm good

Just look at these!  Beautiful, ready to eat while you shop pomegranate or grenadas...
Wednesday is market day in Etla.  I probably shouldn't even post these shots, but you might as well see what you are missing.  First, chile rellanos of the finest quality.
I have to buy from two different ladies so as not to hurt anyone's feeling... such as sacrifice;-)  One of the maestras de chile rellenos.
Just a week or so ago there was the feria de Tamale in the city and as good as the tamales were there, nothing compares to Doña Melisa's. 
Not only are they really tasty, but they are also nice and fat as well.  I am so spoiled.  She has six or eight different kinds and makes hundreds of them each week.
Then why not be tempted by something nice and sweet and crunchy?
Beauty abounds.
Hungry yet?
