|Introduction||Me? about me? I'm still growing up. Grew up in the war zone Americans call "Vietnam." Missionary parents. Moved to Thailand, Arkansas, Hawaii, Indonesia, Virginia, and Texas. 33 different addresses. Learning English, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, Cherokee, Greek, Comanche, and español. High School diploma from Jakarta International School. BA Foreign Service Baylor U, MA Linguistics U of Texas at Arlington, PhD Rhetoric Texas Christian U. Recovering from "the church," "the patriarchy," and the Western "Academy." Somehow still a theist, a monogamous lover, a parent, a child, and a person who runs English language learning programs for outsiders wanting in the Western (now English speaking) Academy. --The photo's of me sitting under some of the maidens of Caryatids at the Erechtheion of the Acropolis outside Athens with sibs and mom some time ago. Here's where I am a co-blogger with some friends: BLT — Bible * Literature * Translation|
