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.
¡Soy consciente de todas las tradiciones del Internet!
If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

Market Day in Etla

It is always such a nice experience going to the market in Etla on Wednesdays, market day.  The energy from all the activity is palpable.  No better way to shop.
I go to this market every few days and on the other days of the week, the place is always vibrant and I can get everything I want easily and inexpensively.  However, Wednesdays, the place is hoppin'.
I was looking at this side of ribs and imagining how good a BBQ they would make.  You can see how big it is.  No, it does not come with an arm.  That belongs the man hidden behind them.  I mean, it it is a whole side of ribs!
And with the ribs, comes the head...
One can get so many good things, like rambutan.
Or rosas
Or a snack
And it's funny, the things we take for granted like these nice baskets.  I can just imagine college students in Boston buying them for their laundry hampers. 
We could make a fortune!
