The yellow circle and the arrow are there to highlight the purple seastar on my hat.
We went through a mildly bohemian phase in the first year of our marriage (mostly cuz we didn't have any money, and were too giddy to care).
Christmas 1987, in Austin, Texas with Bill's parents (that's his multi-talented Dad on the guitar). I would marry Bill all over again just to get his family (even if I weren't so dang fond of 'im); they're terrific people who have been a real blessing to me.
In memoriam: a New Guinea snowman on the porch of our apartment, probably January 1988.
We were very lucky to be able to participate in an extra-curricular Korean drumming ensemble led by an ethnomusicology graduate student named Jong Sung Yang (we were not students yet; I didn't enter Grad School in Folklore 'til 1989, and Bill followed in Linguistics in 1990). That's me standing on the far right; Bill is seated next to me. This picture was taken at a performance our group gave at the Rose-Hulman Technical Institute in Terre Haute, Indiana in February, 1988.
Jong Sung also happens to be an official Living National Treasure of South Korea because of his knowledge of and expertise in traditional music, dance, and medicine (the three go together for shamanic healers).
