Welcome to my Maya-inspired blog

Just think of me as 13-Rabbit, the “Circle Complete Maya Scribe” Ox Lahun Ub’aah.  The rabbit scribe is seen in many drawings, recording happenings in paper-bark folding codices.  As a contemporary Maya scribe, my writings tell stories of real and fictional ancient Mayans (historical fiction) and relate information about their advanced civilization (articles, presentations).  I’ve lived and traveled in Maya regions of southern Mexico, Belize and Guatemala learning from indigenous teachers.  My blog will focus on ancient Maya sites (called ruins), archeology and anthropology, current and past research, and their amazing culture.  I’ll post updates on my writings and other Maya related books/articles.  Research and writing about the ancient Maya are my main creative passions, though I have other interests including gardening, locavore eating, wine tasting, enjoying nature and of course my charming husband David and our two magnificent white cats.
