People, conversation, the States, busking
I've spent the last six years catering to the recently departed, a good chunk of that time playing taxi driver. Just picture a soccer mom van with a stretcher in the back instead of seats and voila!
I'd been putting off travelling as well as just doing what I wanted to be doing for many reasons, none of which are worth a cent explaining here because I've tossed them away and picked up other things. I started playing music in Toronto a coupla' years ago as more than just a hobby and now that is my main endeavour. I am on the quieter side at first, but that doesn't equate to shyness on any level.
I didn't know that, thanks!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've only just begun, but overall, good vibes and open heart.
I've none. Though I have had couchsurfers stay with me through my roommate and her travels.
Experiences, how it's the only thing that can truly shape a person through the decisions they make with whatever is presented them. People are astounding, beautiful, mysterious and overall a gem to learn about and learn from.
All the things we create and do, for the things themselves, or to find a higher meaning in the world and for ourselves.
A good story - I can't purport that I'm a good story teller, but that is what makes me listen even more for the people who are, for the people who try.
Smiles/ing. guffaws and assorted laughter. deep breaths. first stretch of the morning. eyeballs. silence vs. the sound of nothing debate.
Music, Movies, and Books
Most recently I've been digging:
Bill Callahan, white stripes, jens lekman, simon joyner, books, swans, pokey lafarge
night of the hunter, je tu il elle, vertigo, my dinner with andre, star wars (I feel this needs a parentheses as I have only just watched these for the first time in my life and agree it should have happened sooner.)
alice munro, kurt vonnegut, david sedaris, william s. burroughs, Spinoza (mind warp!), Sam Lipsyte
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A 15 peice gypsy kelzmar band starting at one end of Toronto on a busy street parading East, collecting curious bystanders and lovers of spontaneity. After a half hour of walking coming to a major intersection the 200 people who stopped what they were doing to join this magical throng stopped traffic and danced their hearts out. Somehow in the mix clowns appeared, people on stilts, large puppets, painted faces and a whole other assortment of gems that may have otherwise not have joined together in joy that day.
Teach, Learn, Share
The best kinds of people are the people who are into whatever their thing is. They want to interact more with the world to find more answers, interact with more people, build something or answer their own personal questions.
