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.

Just a Mexican Tourist

New England in March is maple syrup time.... when the sap is running, which needs warm days and cold nights.  However, all we have had is cold days and colder nights.... so the sap was not even walking, let alone running.  I was visiting South Face Farm, about two hours from Boston, and while there had a wonderful breakfast of waffles, bacon, corn fritters, coffee and lots of real honest to God maple syrup.  Right from the trees outside the window.  A Mexican would say, "From the trees?  No way. We get our syrup from agave."
Melt in your mouth candies.  Ain't nothin' like them.
Here is the boiling room, but no sap, no action or entertainment.  Still, the food alone was so good, it was well worth the trip.  You should go if you are in the area.
Next week I can watch mezcal being made.
