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.

Torta, Torta, Torta!

We have a new contender in the search for good tortas, grilled sandwiches.  La Popular, the relatively new place on Garcia Vigil. 
I wonder who the picture is.  It kinda looks like Angela Davis, but the fro is not big enough.  I supposed that dates me, eh?  The restaurant is very bright and colorful.  I mean, there is color everywhere, from the chairs, to the table settings, creating a joyful space.  And look at these tortas! The chile relleno picatillo...
And the cochinita pibil.  Looks pretty good, doesn't it.  Well, they both were.
 Here are the menus.
Note the chiles en nogada.  It is that time of year.
La Popular or La Hormiga?  Why not both?  Eat wisely, mis amig@s.
