About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel Italy to find a place of sun and rock and sea to call home

ABOUT ME

I love being alive! I love breakfast, meeting people, listening to their stories, learning new skills. I love feeling the floor cave in from under my feet when confronted to unexepected change, I love adjusting to new rituals, i like sharing knowledge and teaching, I love preparing my rope and climbing equipment under a route I am about to send, I need to be outdoors and feel life's heat on my skin,

PHILOSOPHY

I am not much of a consumer. I believe that we vote with our dollars and that individual action does affect the mass. I don't act like a angry hippie, I respect the way things are, and try to be the best of myself amongst all of it. Our habits are largely defined by our context. A frase that I try to live by says: Change is the Only constant. .. So i put efforts into not being so rigid with my ideas. It's a work in progress. I'm a work in progess.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I enjoy cooking and helping around the house. I am grateful and polite, I usualy jump in to do dishes and always tidy up after myself.

Interests

Learning in general, Tai chi, cycling, climbing, I practice some breathing technics, I like to grow food, and am slowly learning to value sleep and moments of il bel farniente. Doing nothing is an art, I need to practice it a bit.

Music, Movies & Books

Oui, de la musique s'il vous-plait, music please! my favorite moments involve live jams and happy people.

DUB FX I'am discovering. Quebecer music such as Daniel Belanger, Mister Vallaire, Bran Van 3000,

I miss the sound of RataTa, Infected Mushroom, AFI ..

Books: Cité de la Joie de dominique Lapierre, Sidharta,
Livres d'Eric Emanuel Schmitt, de Bernard Webber,
Book on Nonviolent communication, by Rosengerg is awesome.

One Amazing Thing I've Done
