to find a way to lighten lives in challenged places
ever evolving & very multi-faceted
i spend large amounts of time in solitude where i can be loud or silent as the mood takes me from second to second. similarly in company i can listen to people's innermost anxieties or keep bored drivers entertained with lurid tales for hours. i will behave impeccably with frail elderly people, squirm about in the mud with kids or randomly indulge in spontaneous mayhem, it all depends what the situation calls for
i love to share time, energy, notions and adventures with individuals but am not fond of digitally broadcasting myself to the masses.
i have performed in front of thousands but Always in disguise
do unto others as you would be done by
[but keep religion to yerself]
humour, however twisted
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
curiosity about 'couchsurfing' aroused after a random encounter in the dark with a huddle of people smashing something outside my storage unit in the Southern Pacific ticket booth office in the Wild Western town folly in Edinburgh [my life stories never ring true...]
they were churning ice cream, invited me to join them &revealed they had all met through 'couchsurfing'.
truckdrivers, policemen, families so many have invited me into their homes while hitchhiking from Scotland to Syria or otherwise stumbling about the world. the kindness of strangers never ceases to restore my faith in humanity
heavy machinery, murmurations, mathematically folded paper dresses, moving deliriously fast through fresh air, intricacies of wordplay, sound of all sorts, vast panoramas, minute detail, derelict buildings, breathtaking beauty, the cult of the mundane, if i go on i won't stop..
Music, Movies, and Books
music: the good things from every genre [tho rarely what gets into the charts]
from swing to death metal via musique concrete, krautrock, easy listening & extreme noise
the arabs do it for me, as do the balkan gypsies
The Residents are fundamental
ennio morricone is the maestro
books: primarily reference books to try and assuage my hunger for knowledge
