Live a good life of health and service
I'm very lively, bright, committed, great listener, funny and hugely creative. No one believes I'm 64 because I look like I'm 44 and have that kind of energy. My wife, Suk Wah, is amazing: a novelist, a cook, a meditator and totally dedicated.
Each of us is on this planet to contribute something. We're built to be givers rather than takers.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Would love to surf and host, both!
We've hosted a few people and have excellent experiences.
I surfed in Pittsburgh for a couple of nights and was very welcomed.
People! I am a teacher, psychologist and a composer. I love being with people, working with people, creating with people.
I love music, sports (watching mostly!), great food, historic places.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: just about everything.
Books: historical biographies.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When I got married and saw my wife come around the aisle in her bright shining red wedding dress (she's Chinese).
When my book was published.
When I sat in the audience and watched the first opera I composed come to life.
Teach, Learn, Share
I learn from everything and everyone. Whenever something happens in my life--"good" or "bad"--I think, "What am I supposed to learn from this? How is this contributing to my growth?" When I pay attention and follow through: transformation!
