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.

5th Annual Feria de Mezcal y Nieves de Tlacolula

This feria de mezcal and nieves or ices is one of the best and each year it has gotten better.  This seems to be the case for all of the ferias and fiestas we have visited recently.  They are all better organized and all are attracting lots of visitors, who in turn bring lots of money.  It's a win-win.
It was a bit early to sample all the mezcals, but the nieves and all the other foods, no problem.
 It may have been a bit early for me, but not so for the mariachis.
Mezcal is so hot these days and these producers are doing well, taking advantage of the global interest. 
There were a fair number of people there today, but tomorrow?  Market day in Tlacolula?  It should be absolutely packed.  You should go.
 Salud!  Good for them.  ¡Viva Tlacolula!
