Subject Log / Time Code

Came to California in 1978, saw Presidio for first time. Then not again until 2000, became more involved in 2006.
Applying similar approaches to her pre-history work in her work at the Presidio.
Work at the Presidio has changed way she sees The Presidio, and her place in California. Feels like a native of San Francisco, now, has changed her identity.
Favorite parts of the Presidio; teaching students and dancing in the old ballroom.
Likes to imagine the person breaking the bread at the Presidio hundreds of years ago; less interested in the commandants.
