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.

Geeks Bearing Gifts...

I'm heading to El Norte for a couple of weeks and I have folks up there who always appreciate the Oaxacan treats I take up with me  Really, they are all just the traditional gifts you take when you visit folks here.  Things like, chocolate, mezcal, torillas, mole, quesillo.  So, of course, I go to the tortilla ladies just down the road for forty hand made tortillas. 
And then to the Etla market to get everything else.
As always, it's Vicki, my go to source for the last fifteen years.  So much goodness in such a small space. 
And now, everything is wrapped and ready to go.  Hmmm.... now that I think about it, are they happy to see me or is it just the goodies I bring?

Have been missing your posts. Nothing on the Guelaguetza. Nothing on Teotitlan. Are you done posting?
