About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to submit to change

ABOUT ME

I am a teacher living in Oakland: I spent a lot of time reading and drinking tea, sewing and quilting, knitting and making paper crafts. I take care of a parrot, a garden, a household, and in turn these things take care of me.

PHILOSOPHY

feeling gales, listening to leaves, digging in the dirt, making messes in the kitchen, hurricanes, crashing face first!

my mantra is "do what feels right"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would be happy to show you around the Bay Area and share the sense of community that I have been shown. I live in a former hotel in East Oakland called the Happiness Hotel and love to share our big space with travelers. Come tell me your stories!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been both the recipient of a couch and the offerer, and have not had a negative experience. I love to show people my home and do exciting things in my area with travelers.

Interests
