About Me


To wander and wonder in awe of it all. To see what's over the mountain and through the woods.


I am a small person who enjoys occupying small spaces filled with color, creativity, song and friendship. In my hands you might find a pen, a ball of yarn, a fresh picked bunch of kale, a laid-today chicken egg, a cup of tea or wine, or perhaps a suitcase.


It is what it is. What will be will be. I'll just keep passing through it in this life of time travel and see what I can see.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy living in community and have been living in cooperative housing for the last few years. I have offered my home to couch surfers and shown them the in's and out's of the Co-op


I have surfed only a few couches but have hosted many surfers while living in a group house that offered space to a number of amazing travelers. I have met some lovely people through CouchSurfing who I have maintained friendships with.


Picking fruit. Traveling far. Sewing, Stitching. Plucking, strumming. Writing letters, stories, songs. Building. Planting food. Drawing flowers. Making art and friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

yes it do love Tom Robbins and everything he wrote. And I do love Richard Braughtigan's In Water Melon Sugar. I just read it again, out loud this time. It was sadder than I remember.
Some musicians that come to mind are Mississippi John Hurt, The Mountain Goats, Neko Case, Otis Redding, Violeta Para, Paper Bird, Stevie Wonder
