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.

Pan de muerte in Mitla

As far as I can figure, Mitla is the place to go for pan de muerte.
They do it like no one else and it is a high art, as you can see from this post about last year's exhibition/competition.  These are just the normal ones for folks to buy for Muertos.  Still, so beautiful.
We were a week early just checking out the scene and figuring out when best to return, but the market was filled with ladies decorating the pan.  A baggie with a corner snipped off was the tool of choice and the results....
 We will be going back this weekend to see the new exhibition.  Be there or be square.
