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.

More muertos... food... empanadas!

Yes, I have beautiful shots of altars, cemeteries and people, but let's face it, there is nothing like good food and after visiting the always beautiful sea of flowers in the panteon in San Antonino Castillo Velasco, it was empanada time and this woman makes some of the very best.  She is amazing... and note she is wearing classic San Antonino embroidery.

I always get one when I'm there and bring a couple back for later.  Every empanada is different, depending on where it is made and who is making. And hers are simply sublime, crunchy and so tasty.  The thing about these is the consistency of the batter that solidifies as it cooks.  Others can be a bit runny, but these are nice and solid.  The secret here in San Antonino is the masa in the mixture.
She's a maestra!  She has a comedor just of the main drag, so you can get one anytime you want.... You want one?
