About Me


Cracking paradigms of modern civilization.


I thrive on adventure and new experiences. I´m usually enthusiastic about meeting new people, I like simplicity and am easily entertained. I enjoy quiet mornings with coffee or black tea and a book. Or quiet evenings with herbal tea and a cat on my lap. I enjoy wilderness areas more than cities, but appreciate good things about both places. A lot of my friends have called me brave, but I look at it more as stubborn. I like to challenge myself and be outside my comfort zone. I also appreciate coziness and safety, but if it´s for too long I get bored. Music and free shows make me very happy. As do groups of people working together to uplift the marginalized or subvert society´s paradigms of greed, wealth and consumerism.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hm. I am often awestruck at small things. One time I sat and watched a spider spinning its web in the door frame of the back shed at our cabin in northern Wisconsin. And most sunsets leave me quite awestruck as well. I´m often astounded that such brilliant colors exist.
