I'm a Deep Springs graduate (www.deepsprings.edu) living in Chicago. I work and live in community. I love art, chatting, caring, and exploring, and try to read and write whenever I can. I'm just trying to keep thoughtful, living honest and with uncertainty.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Sharing with strangers keeps you honest. With couchsurfing, both host and surfer are a little vulnerable ("what if they're crazy, annoying, or boring?"), but everyone I've met through couchsurfing has rewarded me with generosity and surprise, so I keep coming back.
