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.

Cambio - Change

Here is a shot from a week or two ago of the nieves (ices) stand in front of the new interior shopping area on Macedonia Alcala directly across from Amate Books. I took it because I loved the flavors. "I would like a crema de mezcal, por favor."Here is the same shot yesterday. Cinnabon has arrived. Change.

Wow, really Cinnabon?? Is it popular?? My wife is Oaxaquena but we haven't been there for five years. We always talk about all the food we miss living in the states, but she loves Cinnabon too! Best of both worlds when we visit now, lol

Yes, it seems to be pretty popular. It is in an absolutely prime location. You could gain weight just smelling them.
Time for a visit, don't you think?
