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.

One week from today in Reyes Etla

Yes indeed, exactly one week from today, Reyes Etla, the world famous home of queso and quesillo, will host its annual guelaguetza or dance festival.  And look at this place.  Is it not one of the most gorgeous settings for anything?
Nacho Libre was filmed there, too.  It is incredibly lush country.  You can see for miles and miles....
Of course, there is the annual feria de queso and quesillo right next to the dance action.   It does not get any better than this.  This guelaguetza is such a nice intimate affair with only a few hundred people watching, but it is getting more and more popular each year.   Now the big question is will tourists come or stay away in droves after all the negative publicity.  Uh, people.... you should come.  It is gonna be great once again. In the meantime, work goes on...
Be sure to check out the amazing number of things to do in the next few weeks over at Casita Colibri where there is a schedule for everything.
