About Me


My mission is to liberate the world: spiritually, musically, intellectually, etc.

- for not accepting guests now. (I don't have a couch at the minute.)
- for lack of references / friends / full frontal photo: I prefer not to post my photo, or info about who I'm friendly with, where I might stay, my travel plans, etc., due to a past domestic violence experience.

I'm a writer / musician; a middle-aged vintage hippy chick. Love music, alternative ideas, art, events.

I believe in ... almost everything.

We all share the same consciousness. So whatever needs to be communicated, learned, experienced, etc., will try to manifest for you. So it's good to listen to everything / everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm still new to using the Couchsurfing site (although joined first in 2011.)
It sounds like a cool, internet-organized version of what was once a way of life for many musicians (like in that movie about the folk singer with the cat.) I love the way the world is opening up, getting more cool. (Even in the teeth of all the things that seem to get worse.)

I've a good deal of experience in community / communal households, which makes me comfortable with sharing the kitchen, being considerate, collective decision-making, getting on with diverse folks, etc. Love meeting cool people from everywhere, & having a meeting of minds.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love film noir, black & white movies of the 40s, etc..

I'm a total book hound. Non-fiction, history, archaeology, classic fiction.

Music is my life. Very keen on trad, folk, acoustic, world, psychedelic jam bands, blues, gritty blues-y rock. But/and I dig anything that's very well done; from classical to hip-hop.
