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.

Flowers for my dinner

Look at these beautiful flowers of a different sort.  These are fresh flor de calabasa, squash blossoms, and they are going to be stuffed with cheese and fried or put in quesadillas, tamales, empanadas, soups and all sorts of taste treats.  If you have ever grown squash you can recognize just what an amazing harvest this is and there are probably many more flowers replacing these as the sun comes up today.  You hardly ever see these in US markets, but they are a constant here.  The pile of cilantro next to them looks pretty good, too.
