About Me


The Dude abides


Probably the best way to know about me is to read my Myspace:
or Facebook:

In case you don't have those accounts, I'll give you a current synopsis...
I'm passionately working on building my own business with no investment capital and no rich husband supporting me. wOOt! wOOt!
I work really hard and love most minutes of it.
I'm creative, passionate and frequently blunt.
I drink Americanos from Starbucks, never Lattes and never whith skim milk.


"A person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which and simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace, whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them they are always doing both."

"Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed."

“I feel something within me, something that leaves its resting place and attempts to rise, something that has been embedded like an anchor at great depth; I do not know yet what it is, but I can feel it mounting slowly; I can measure the resistance, I can hear the echo of great spaces traversed….”
~PROUST, from "In Search of Lost Time"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


What's CS2?


I haven't done anything HERE yet, but I've been a bastion of couch love for my friends since I got my own place in 1994.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got my brothers together from across the country to be with our dad before he died. I'm most proud of that.

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's see, I've participated in a lot of pretty deep emotional work as well as heady, transformational type stuff. So, I know a lot of catchy phrases, and I can probably help you understand why you have your anger issues. ;-)
