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.

Market day in Etla

Wednesday is market day in nearby Etla.  Today, there seemed to be more action than usual, but I just blow through and hit all my normal vendors.  Everything looked so fresh and healthy.  It is so easy to eat well here... and for almost no money. 
The peso is 16.8 to the dollar, so you do the math.  Things are really inexpensive.... and so tasty.
And in keeping with my mandala series, how about this one?
I eat a lot of carrots, in fact, in almost every meal ... but not quite this many.
