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.

Emilia's mole negro

This may be the best mole negro in the universe... or the world..... anyway, it is sooooo good.  This is Emilia Gonzalez from Teotitlan del Valle and she is seriously, an amazing cook.  Yesterday, it was tamales amarillo and today, this absolutely sublime mole negro, the traditional meal for the second day of Muertos.
Along with rice and tortillas right off the comal... it does not get any better.  I feel so honored and blessed every time I eat one of her creations.  And much of it is made right here in this outdoor cocina.
It's not like I'm the only one who loves this woman.  Here's Emilia in one of Lila Down's videos.
