About Me


Soaking in every experience with every atom of my body and then thinking about it...


In the essence of clarity: I am located in Lowell, which is 30 miles north of Boston.

I have learned much from travels, from travelers; people who live their lives in chaos, in peace; people who live their life like a work of art, as though it is no "work" at all. So many people do this.

I am a social worker, or I do social work, rather. This is what I do for paid work, too.


I know nothing; I am open to experiencing everything.
I believe that the universe is chaos, self-organizing and sacred. I hope to change nothing; change runs its own course.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Many different opportunities have come from such an idea. Meeting, traveling with, sharing shelter and food with people... the foundations of creating relationships.


Connection, people and conversation, exchanging of ideas and philosophies, books, book shops, travelers and traveling, culture, languages, activity, nature and the stars, documentaries, spirituality and the metaphysical, yoga, people-watching. Anything.

I am interested in studying spaces. I think much can be learned in studying and being aware of the spaces created between people and also the spaces created within the self. I am interested in how these spaces evolve. Society and the individual, the concept of self and pseudoselves are interesting for me. I challenge standards set by society and am interested and open to hearing, seeing, and living alternatives to these standards.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Normal day,
Let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in a quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
-M.J. Irion
