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.

Food, glorious food!

Heads up!  Today was the first day of the Encuentro de Cocineras Tradicionales de Oaxaca, one of the best food events of the the year.  This is its second year and it was hard to improve on last year's inauguration, but they surely have, with 300 different dishes prepared by 85 oaxaqueñas and their many helpers. 
What a wonderful opportunity to sample many, many different Oaxacan specialties. 
It goes on for four days and I plan on returning a couple more times just because it is just too good to miss.  I'll have more, but for now.... Be There or Be Square! 
Plus, you can hang with the Mendoza sisters, maybe the most famous Oaxacan cooks in all the world.  Their mole?  Sublime!
