July, 28, 2001, from the Temple of the Moon, at Teotihuacan in Mexico.  The taller Temple of the Sun looms to the left (I had climbed that one in March), and the Avenue of the Dead to the right.  This site dates back to 800 B.C.E.

Bienvenidos/as to my home page. I'm very glad that you made it this far . . . and I hope that you'll stick around long enough to get to know just a little bit more about me and my life.  From end of August of 2000 to the end of May of 2001 I lived in Mexico City (Tonochtitlán of the ancients), aka D. F., or the Distrito Federal (Federal District, like Washington, D.C.), and most commonly referred to simply as México.  (The country is referred to as La República.)  From this base I conducted research on a favorite subject, the Matachines Danza, as a Fulbright Scholar, through various states of La República, including Oaxaca, Zacatecas, Jalisco, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosí, Aguascalientes, Chihuahua, and of course, D.F.  Guess what?  At this point I can even identify all the states of Mexico AND put them in their right places on the soft plastic puzzle I bought while waiting at a traffic light...

Background and Interests

I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the "big city" of my childhood.  When I was almost 11, my father, a social worker, was transferred to Gallup, NM, where I lived through high school, and from September 68 to March 69, and finally from May to August in 1970. Example HR
