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.

Let us have lettuce....

This is a great time of year for lettuce.  The sun is low and it is cooler.  I've finally figured out to keep a steady supply.  I normally sow seeds very lightly in large low round pots, but they always get too crowded.  This time I went even lighter on the seeds and still, they were too crowded.  So I transplanted as many as I felt like, along with transplanting carrots... and everything worked.  Lots of these greens reseed themselves, especially the arugula and the red leaf lettuce.
They are so healthy, they glow.... and those little caterpillars love them, too.
