"Traveling is not the seeing of sights, it is a change that goes on deep in the way we live" Unknown
I am a twin. It defines me, in more ways than I care to admit, but enriches my life deeply.
I am adopted and have an A-Typical extended family.
I work in Mount Vernon.
I am working toward a graduate program in TCM but can't find a program the integrates western crisis intervention.
I just moved back to the great city of Baltimore from the South Pacific, please steal me away for some distracting adventure that will change the angle of our perception.
On the last leg of my journey home.
I have shifted; perhaps even evolving is the right word, to express something i can only feel. I am learning; the least of which is that I am on the brink of great change.
I learned that I don't think that there is a great battle between good and evil, rather a ebb and flow between the forces of laziness and inspiration.
It takes all kinds of people to make the world work.

---Anything beautiful is special, AND especially dangerous.
---Don't ever compromise your art, or the quality of your vitamins.

---A person is smart, people are dumb.
---True love is merely chemical reaction.
---Compromises are personal choices you can't hold someone else responsible.
---If you can't communicate, don't fornicate.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted and been hosted. However I would like to spend some time meeting others in a group setting.
"It is my hope the world does not narrow into a neighborhood before broadening into a brotherhood." LBJ
Here's the truth: People, even regular people, are never just any one person with one set of attributes. It's not that simple. We're all at the mercy of the limbic system, clouds of electricity drifting through the brain. Every man is broken into twenty-four-hour fractions, and then again within those twenty-four hours. It's a daily pantomime, one man yielding control to the next: a backstage crowded with old hacks clamoring for their turn in the spotlight. Every week, every day. The angry man hands the baton over to the sulking man, and in turn to the sex addict, the introvert, the conversationalist. Every man is a mob, a chain gang of idiots. This is the tragedy of life. Because for a few minutes of every day, every man becomes a genius. Moments of clarity, insight, whatever you want to call them. The clouds part, the planets get in a neat little line, and everything becomes obvious. I should quit smoking, maybe, or here's how I could make a fast million, or such and such is the key to eternal happiness. That's the miserable truth. For a few moments, the secrets of the universe are opened to us. Life is a cheap parlor trick. But then the genius, the savant, has to hand over the controls to the next guy down the pike, most likely the guy who just wants to eat potato chips, and insight and brilliance and salvation are all entrusted to a moron or a hedonist or a narcoleptic. The only way out of this mess, of course, is to take steps to ensure that you control the idiots that you become. To take your chain gang, hand in hand, and lead them.
30 BEFORE 35. (Juan thanks for the inspiration) That's the idea. Graduate School.
Music, Movies, and Books
" The Botany of Desire" (the idea is that plants are domesticating humans instead of the other way around.)
" Blessed Unrest" only a few pages in, but was referred by a close friend.
"The Web That Has No Weaver" the basis for my medical direction
Music- right now Wax Tailor,The Dells, Hoodoo Man Blues, Robert Johnson, My Morning Jacket, AND The Tom Tom Club, Depeche Mode, Peter Frampton, Neil Young, Michael and Janet Jackson, The Avett Brothers, The New Cold Play album, and my faithful Pinback LCD are on TOP of my cd player.
Movies- I love to watch all movies, It's one of my favorite pass times, but I don't like horror it gives me nightmares. I always have some big opinion about them (everything really.
