PHILOSOPHY

to burn what I worship and worship what I burn

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

love the folks who are looking how to broaden their horizon.

my couch surfing experience has been great times - I want to give back when I can. I am not living in a a big place but big enough although I have a housemate. I do love to be around people who are literally going places and who like to talk about where they are and places they look forward to going !

Interests

mesmerizing landscapes, fusion cusine, transitory moments of earthshaking resonance, nonsense words, utter peace errr - peas that is. I cook like every night, no.. like every night. my dog thinks I am god but that is not true. Perhaps, my god thinks that I am a dog ... but that is hard to know. I could go on ...

yoga, cycling, listening, celebrating, imagining holding on by one hand as the merri-go-round spins on it's axis, I am rather obsessed with music and public radio.
