About Me


to finish and sort of understand the "Ulysess" by JJ, in about, let's say, 5 years


I still am a dreamer and a believer, but I am 44 and so, I do balance the latter with reality. I can be both extremely social, but I can also enjoy being alone, most of the time writing, or spending time in the darkroom and on long walks. I am disciplined and believe in hard work.


The following statement sums it up quite nicely:
"To create you must make magic, but there is no magic without discipline"
Kenneth Anger

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting and surfing, surfing and hosting.


On sept 2007 my father passed away and I was in NY city, in a youth hostel. Deb and Duke (couchsurfers) without knowing me or what was going on, offer me a couch for an unlimited time, and their friendship and I can only be thankful for having met them in such a difficult moment.

Teach, Learn, Share

LEARN to be a better listener, more tolerant, more patient. Very, very hard.
TEACH by example to be a better listener. Hope I can teach this.
SHARE silence, your own, and laughter, of course, your own.
