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.

Love affair with Tlacolula

It is always such a joy to visit Tlacolula. 
 It is a wonderful palette cleanser, an immersion into a rich stew of humanity in all its glory.
Sunday market is one of the the most popular and richest experiences, intense, at times, but fun.
The produce is always as good as one can find.
And some of the the very best street food anywhere.  These tacos and gorditas are from the stand right at the very beginning of the market. 
Under an orange canopy.  That's why the colors are off, but, oh my, the taste.  
The tacos are exceptional, but that gordita.... maybe the best street food combo, good fillings, deep fried in a patty of masa and then cut and filled with sour cream, lettuce and all the salsas and condiments you want.  So good!!  There was a time when I drove to Tlacolula six weeks in a row just to get a gordita.  True!  Just writing about it.....  I want one right now.....
