About Me

Hi,

I just moved to Providence, Rhode Island several days ago, March 16th, 2018. I'm moving here, staying at a hostel while looking for housing. I want to live in a shared housing - group house/collective. I just returned after living the last 7 months in Montpellier, France where I moved July, 2017. The year prior I lived and worked in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Working as substitute teacher (K-12 all subjects) with the public schools and teaching skiing during the weekends and holidays. After the ski/academic school year, I moved to Taos, 90 mi. northeast of Santa Fe to do a work exchange, living in a yurt with no plumbing or electricity. Besides being as close to nature as you can get outside of camping in the wilderness, I befriended several dogs in the hood. I was devoting my time to completing my first book, an eBook.

My intent is to continue writing my blogs, complete my book, continue learning languages and use my knowledge of French, German and Spanish as a translator. I’d like to take courses in ecological education and environmental science. I lived in San Francisco where I worked in administrative positions and learned computer skills. I love to draw, particularly portraits of people and animals.  I'm a musician who plays piano, bass guitar and like to sing. I compose music taking samples of animal calls and incorporating them into the music; whales and dolphins, so far. I'm writing a book (with scientific topics woven into the spiritual tale) which I hope to complete soon. My blogs focus on topics from environmental to ecological and personal health, alternative education, bee-highways, animal bridges, animal poaching and habitat loss.

My contact information is carolkeiter@gmail.com and cell phone (720) 243-2953

Here is information about me which I posted in my previous profile.

I love to learn, discuss, explore, love languages, interacting with people and animals. I love cosmopolitan environments and what they offer as much as I love being outdoors in nature.

I joined a group during the Paris climate talks 2012 COP21 - http://www.placetob.org/en/ - the best investment I ever made. I'd found out about this through a friend participating in this collective and helping to put it together. They hosted people from all over the world, offering a series of lectures, discussions, presentations and workshops about what is happening all over the globe due to climate change and specifically the fallout from the worlds’ economy being based on oil; that has caused wars, negatively affected agriculture due to the industrial push that has also rested on oil and chemical producers. There was such a resplendent amount of information that was shared there about beneficial practices and success stories in transforming peoples’ lives and environments for the benefit of all. I want to work specifically with environmental, ecological or social organizations; working with the sciences and arts in communities to teach and promote sustainable living practices.

I'm an American born and raised in Pennsylvania. I studied Cultural Anthropology in Washington D.C.. I’ve lived in Berlin, Germany besides Montpellier, France and Barcelona, Spain. I love to cook, have a podcast about medicinal foods and spices.

PHILOSOPHY

Everything is interconnected, and therefore the waves coming from my actions, and yours, are affecting everything/everyone else. Be accountable to your own dreams, a responsibility to yourself to do what you love and shine through it. And whatever you put out there will inspire and influences others. Celebrate life and be silent enough to listen, watch, feel, love, learn and to have compassion, appreciation and gratitude.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think that the whole concept of couchsurfing is a great thing. the idea of sharing ideas and information with people who are interested in traveling and discovering things about other cultures and themselves, is a very positive thing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I finally couch surfed last summer in Paris which was great! and i've couchsurfed across the US on a drive this past autumn of 2007, when i found a driver of a car (we shared driving and gas) from the right coast to the left coast ;-) and couchsurfed along the way. every couchsurfer i've met, i've liked and felt a resonance with!!

Interests

Learning about healthy foods and spices and their preparation. I love to cook and eat. A fairly recent addition is learning about and practicing heart rhythm meditation. Fascination and awe for all flora and fauna - i love the outdoors. I have so much traveling to do, so much to see and learn about. I love learning languages and interacting with people who are from another language base and culture. I love exploring metropolitan areas and enjoying all of the arts and culture that I can be exposed to.

I have always done sports from the time I was a little kid; dance, ice skating, skiing, swimming and enjoy sports on boards and wheels; skateboarding and snow boarding. I enjoy tennis, hiking, running. I’ve been involved in ultimate frisbee teams and pickup leagues in every city I’ve lived in. I love animals.

I often am compelled to write about environmental subjects, animal rights and protection of their habitats; humans should be guardians for protecting animals’ environments and doing everything that they can to consider them. I love to make music, enjoy playing piano and bass guitar. I also love to make music using computer programs; I’ve started a music niche of taking animal calls and weaving them into the music - to give animals a voice. I love dancing and also to draw, particularly doing portraits of people and animals on occasion as well.

Politics and economics as far as investigating all of our collective paths in life. Fascinated with the subject of consciousness. and wish to explore and continue to learn about it. Meeting new people and discovering information is a continuous enjoyment, which is why I have often enjoyed hitchhiking; it invariably introduces one to other people’s perspectives.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I’ve done numerous ‘hitchabouts’ You can go to my carolkeiter blog and search for ‘hitchabout’, like so https://carolkeiter.wordpress.com/?s=hitchabout and you’ll see a substantial number of blogs about my hitching experiences in the USA and Europe. I joined a group during the Paris climate talks 2012 COP21 - http://www.placetob.org/en/ - the best investment I ever made. I'd found out about this through a friend participating in this collective and helping to put it together.
