Trying to find people who and places that open up my heart.
Hello :) I'm fairly soft-spoken and usually quiet and reserved around new people. I do love to hear stories, though, and I love to explore overlooked places. Sometimes I get a bit lost in my dreams. I also like to sing and hum and take photos of buildings. I'd really like to find a way to make a living from the things that make my heart tingle. The plans are still in the works, however :)
Sometimes, I laugh to myself.
I like to find portals.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I don't know how to cook anything more complicated than rice, but I can wash dishes and walk dogs and clean. I have some books that I could trade as well, if you'd be interested. I could also exchange photos for a night or two on your couch.
I am new to the couchsurfing experience.
Photography, music, poetry, film, architecture, books, thrifting, hiking, canoeing/kayaking (I've never been kayaking before, but I'd like to try!), astrology, art museums, antiques...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been to a lot of national parks in the United States. Seen a lot of nature, I suppose. I've gotten close enough to a teenaged moose that I could touch the fuzz growing around his antlers. I just looked, though.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach people a bit about Buddhism and philosophy and Chinese Medicine. I can't perform acupuncture, but I know a lot about the theory behind the practice. I also know a lot about astrology. I know how to use Photoshop pretty well, and I can give a photography lesson or two if you're interested. I've also edited a book, so if you need someone to proofread something, I'd be more than willing to take a look. And I like to dress a bit funky, so if you want to go shopping, I'd gladly pal around with you!
I don't know how to fix too many things. If I could learn more about how to fix leaky sinks, flat tires, etc., that would be incredible. I'm not so good with practical things, heh.
