About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to "change the world in me" ...

ABOUT ME

Writer, teacher, radical, spiritual seeker, returning to US after 15 years to fight the good fight

Since 1992, have lived in Czech Republic, Scotland, and Australia.

Currently back in Oz, packing up to head to New Zealand.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe, kind of like the Quakers (Society of Friends) that we are here to discover our purpose and, once having discovered it, to achieve it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have now surfed in England and Seattle, Washington and am a BIG fan. Have couch (even bed!) in Brisbane, Australia.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, pretty brilliant! Most people I've met I stay in touch with through email--have found it to be a community of kindred spirits. The Seattle folks in particular were progressive, generous and super hospitable.

Interests

Horses, literature, leftist politics, travel, alternative lifestyles, alternative spirituality ... lots more.

Music, Movies & Books

Mists of Avalon, Chronicles of Narnia, Temple of my Familiar; U2, Sinead O'Conner, Crowded House, Midnight Oil, Byron Bay Blues Fest; Out of Africa, LOTR, The Piano, Whale Rider, Gone with the Wind. Just read The Whale Warriors, story of Paul Watson and Sea Shepherd's quest to stop illegal Japanese whaling in Antarctica; now reading Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lived in Prague from 1992-1999 and studied and reported on the society's transition from central controlled communism to free market capitalism--and the peoples' reaction to it.

Teach, Learn, Share

How to write an essay
How to organise a political action
How to get around in Prague/Czech Republic
Interesting information about horses :-/
Lots of socio-political information about how the world really works, stuff you won't get in school and might not even want to know--but there's some good stuff too (like CouchSurfing! ;-)
