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.

Soup in a Bag...

It is so nice to be back where such wonderful fresh produce is so readily available.  This morning, in the little Friday market in Viguera, this bag of freshness caught my eye.  All the ingredients for sopa de guia, a soup made from squash, its tendrils, flowers and leaves, all in a corn based broth. I've never made it before, but I've had it many times.  It's a true Oaxacan soup.  Normally, the broth is made using corn husks, but there was a pickup truck loaded with fresh corn, so....
The finished product was quite close to the real thing.  Very tasty and oh so healthy!
And enough for days!
