upon a time, a wee li’l monkey-child was born in the panhandle of
Texas. And then
proceeded to move to Houston; then Albuquerque, New
Mexico; then Oklahoma City;
then Carmel, Indiana; then Austin, Texas.
And then the li’l monkey was old enough
to start school. Without a
landscape to call a monkey’s own, the wee li’l monkey
places especially: Austin and The Dinetah.
The mesas will do that to you.
Welcome to The Red Monkey Blog, where my various Los Interwebz monkikers (ender, enderFP and Red Monkey) all babble about this, that and, of course, the other.
I just moved back to Albuquerque after many long years in exile (in Indiana of all places). I am not one of the Dineh, but have been fascinated with the Navajo, New Mexico, the mesas and the desert Southwest since I was a wee li’l monkey. The main mesa pictured here and in the header is Dzlith-Na-O-Dith-Hle just south of Farmington. It’s also called Huerfano, but I prefer the Navajo even though I can’t pronounce it.
Some say I’m obsessed with old Fisher Price Little People. I think it’s a nice hobby and less damaging than say, crack. Or alcohol. Or any number of other vices. Like, you know, blogging.
Yes, yes I am a geek. Thank you for noticing.
