Join Couchsurfing to see joel’s full profile. It’s free!
Adventurous, curious, adaptable, compassionate, a lifelong learner. While
living in England during the 70' I began the practice of TM . Some of the
intervening years were less focused on personal growth but my life practices
today are in line with my core beliefs. I have not wondered who I would
be without my 'professional' work as I have learned to satisfy my basic needs
while not committing to an other-directed daily regimen. We can develop and
exercise our power to choose. No need to be a trust funder. Discover what you
love, engage with friends and family, live and share your beliefs. Remain open
and keep mindful that 'the only constant is change' I still enjoy the sense of
never quite knowing what's going on. India, prime example.
I hope to meet you
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
For the opportunity to engage in free, creative inquiry. Discover more
about how we are shaped by culture and to share the mundane aspects
of others lives being thankful to be ignorant of so much that surrounds
me in each moment. I only speak English so I can enjoy by guessing what's
being said. My mantra, I will be OK, no matter what. The world is a terrific
Music, Movies, and Books
Anything that transports, inspires, informs, brings a smile or a tear. Art is
in the eye, the ear, the heart of the beholder.
Two favorite writers from the Pacific NW are Tom Robbins and Ken Kesey.
Krishnamurti, Chomsky. Travel writers, Pico Iyer, Jan Morris, Graham Greene.
Each Xmas I rewatch 'It's a wonderful Life'.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
What I Can Share with Hosts
The wisdom of the moment. The charity in giving and receiving. My
personal travel journey includes fifty countries, more or less. I lived
in Suffolk, England for three years.
