About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Keep seeing surreal.

ABOUT ME

"My theory is that when it comes to important subjects, there are only two ways a person can answer. Which way they choose tells you who that person is. For instance, there are only two kinds of people in the world, Beatles people and Elvis people. Now Beatles people can like Elvis and Elvis people can like the Beatles, but nobody likes them both equally. Somewhere you have to make a choice. And that choice, tells you who you are."
*I'm a Beatles person :=)

PHILOSOPHY

"I was wise enough never to grow up, while fooling people into believing I had." — Margaret Mead

Life is so much more special when one recognizes the beauty in all that we ignore.

**Leap, and the net will appear.**

"Absolute submission can be a form of freedom. I love my mind when it is fucking the cracks of events. Boredom makes you do crazy things. Artificial desires are despoiling the earth. Dying and coming back gives you considerable perspective. Moderation kills the spirit. Pain can be a very positive thing. Romantic love was invented to manipulate women. Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison. Solitude is enriching. Spending too much time on self-improvement is antisocial. You are a victim of the rules you live by."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Any way I can give back what I received out there. Having just come home from 2 months 'on the road', I saw this incredible thing everyday, the greatness of humanity. I feel blessed and overwhelmed with gratitude and astonishment for constant lucky chance encounters with so many unique, hysterical, wildly fun, extraordinary, life altering people, both in and out of couchsurfing. I will participate by perpetuating the cycle, being part of the greatness, giving kindness for kindness, keep it movin'....
"only love can conquer hate"

Interests

*photography*, minor obsession with all things musical, black holes- astronomy-astro physics geek, books and more books, what's happening for dinner, what I can bake for dessert, where the best dance party is, sleeping late, endless hunt for the best coffee, WiNe, obscure films, being in the water, people watching, maps, languages, anything outside of that claustrophobic box................. Life

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Going to Switzerland just to get chocolate. Going to Belgium just for the beer *and more chocolate*. Flipping a coin at the train station as a means to decide which country I'll go to.
Going wherever the cheap flights of that day will take me.
Or an incredible spontaneous stranger will take me.
Or a car full of people will take me.
Or the heads or tails will take me....
traveling solo with no destination and no flight home, following no itinerary but the last minute plans that changed to this minute plans, flying by the seat of my pants on a surreal wild ride of unbelievable madness that often felt like a decision of the insane. My instincts went into overdrive and my ability to read any country/city/transportation map in record time became savant. I crossed my fingers and breathed through episodes of anxiety because they always metamorphed into the most exhilarating high when things just became....amazing.
And the illusion of insane becomes the envy of the 'sane'.
I'm still feeling a little bionic.
My brain and life and soul will never be the same.
How lucky I feel to have seen so much, yet not nearly enough....
