About Me

CURRENT MISSION

not accomplished

ABOUT ME

A journeyman, making his own way through life, and not by the most usual or convenient route.

PHILOSOPHY

I once thought it would a great to be a thinking man. So I aspired to that and tried hard to coax fine and original thoughts from my reluctant brain. When I'd become good at that I heard it said that thoughts are the evil of man, what now?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Caution: In British English a 'couch' is better known as a 'settee' or 'sofa'. In England, only psychiatrists own couches. So be careful to avoid embarrassing yourself during initial conversations with Brits.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Regular hosting, and I surfed one comfortable couch in Krakow, Poland!

Interests

Permaculture, vipassana.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like music that recharges me. The music I most enjoy has a sound beyond what ears can detect, but speaks to me loud and clear.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Too many to mention.
