About Me


Mission Figs.


Franciscan missionaries introduced them to Northern California sometime before I was introduced to Northern California, and the old woman brought them to my family in vats, half of which had to be eaten that day or else they'd spoil.

It was my mission to do so. It still is. To comprehend the fruit of things at their ripest.


Pay attention. Be funny. Remember your body.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Things that are interesting. Among some winners: dance, using words, trees, breathing trees, cars, moving fast in cars, planets, stereos, lovers, rocking chairs, grandmothers, mirrors.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all variety of live music and musicians in live form. The radio was a nice invention.

I had a Facts of Life pop up book when I was a young child. That was a good book.

I like movies that either lack obvious narrative conflict (Baraka) or movies where that conflict is so hyperbolized that it becomes absurd (David Lynch, Lars Von Trier).
