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.

My daily fruit fix

I am so lucky to have this fruit stand just down the road from me.  I stop there almost every day.  They always seem to have the best of seasonal produce.  Right now, it is mango, papaya, coco, watermelon and cucumber season.  I always get mine neat and unadorned, but I could get it like everyone else, with lime juice and chili.  I am so spoiled by daily access to all this fresh fruit, always so good..... and so inexpensive.  Everything is ten pesos.  That's 53 cents US.  Right now, the mangoes are just about as good as they can get.  Manna from Heaven.  There really is nothing like fresh fruit.
Not only do they take care of me with fresh fruit, but they also give me all the fruit waste I want for the worms I'm cultivating.
