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.

'Shrooms - Cuajimaloyas

Yesterday we went to the feria de hongos in the mountain village of Cuajimaloyas and as you can see they had some serious mushrooms.
There were tamales, empanadas, soups, drinks, candies and many other foods, all made from the most delectable fresh mushrooms.
Wonderful food and wonderful people.  Check out the one that looks like a brain.  She said that it was just a quarter of the whole thing.
Positive proof.
Look at all the varieties they grow and harvest in Cuajimaloyas.
Gotta run... guelaguetza in Reyes Etla this morning...... more in a bit.

Is the feria de hongos for more than just today, Chris?

I am pretty sure it was just this past weekend. Next year for sure!
