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.

Ribs! - Costillas!

The cuisine here in Oaxaca is famous and one has the opportunity to sample all sorts of foods and recipes.  Vegetables, fruit, cheeses, plants, drinks, meats, insects, you name it, we eat it.  Normally, I eat salads with either rice or potatoes with some cheese thrown in, but recently, I have been trying out recipes, slow cooking ribs in cazuelas, large ceramic dishes, that impart a wonderful taste.  So that means off to the nearby market in Etla.  So many stalls to choose from by I eneded up buying a couple of kilos of wonderful pork ribs.  The best part, besides the eating, was watching this woman work.  A thing of beauty.
