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.

If you are coming to Oaxaca, please contact me for tours or advice.

It's the little things....

Do you recognize these fruits?  They are tunas, not the fish, no, the fruit of the nopal cactus, prickly pear.  And they are delicious, one of the most popular flavors for nieves, ices.


After reading that blogger buddy spixl, who is in El Norte, says that small avocados are $3.98 US in California, where they grow the things... well, it just made me appreciate how lucky I am to be where fresh fruits and vegetable are so readily available and so inexpensive.  I got four medium size avocados for about $.50 US each... and they are all perfect, timed to ripen, each over the next four days.  And look at these grapes. $.50 US a lb.
So many fresh things, direct from the garden
Anyone for miel, honey?
Fresh handmade tortillas, tamales. everything you could want..
Glad to be here....
