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.

Another feria

Maybe it is like this in other places and there are fairs every week, but Oaxaca sure shines in this area.  Maybe it is because there are so many unique aspects and things to celebrate.  From corn to mezcal to tamales to dance to food, it just keeps going.  And so at the top of the Alacala, the pedestrian walkway, the first annual Feria de Emprendedores en Movimiento, Entrepreneurs in Motion.
And it was happening.  This is looking north just above Santo Domingo.
And looking south from the other end.  Lots of different things for sale, food, plants, crafts, clothing and more.
I was overwhelmed and made it through without getting anything, but I plan on going back.
