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.

We all scream for .........

La Feria de la Nieve
For the next three days the Plaza de la Danza will be the coolest places to be as it will be filled with ices, ice creams and artesanos.  Oaxaca in all its glory.
The vendors came from all over and even though it was early on the first day, the place was hoppin' with a band playing and several dance groups.  I remember this woman, Aracely, from the Feria de Nieve in Tlacolula last April.  She has it down.  Her ices are delicious.
I sampled as many as I could and kept going back for more.
 These guys had some wonderful combinations.... mango with nuts.
And some traditional fare, as well.
I'm definitely going back for more.   If you know Oaxaca, you'll know that this feria is right next to the ice cream center of Oaxaca, the newly renovated Jardín Socrates, which is filled with nieve vendors.  Needless to say, business was down today.
