Keep moving forward. Keep it simple.
I like to read, swim, spend time with friends, but more one-on-one or in small groups. I have a 16-year-old daughter who seems to bring joy to everyone she meets. She's very outgoing, easygoing, and funny. Other couchsurfers have described her as "cool."
Oh my, this is intimidating. Though I was pretty young when it came out, I always liked the message "Choke me in the shallow waters before I get too deep." Seriously, though, Buddhism is making a lot of sense to me and it's pretty deep. And the theories that I used in my doctoral research are pretty deep. Depth is just difficult to sum up in a paragraph. It's important to take the time to get to know people and let their depth emerge.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've been participating more and more and am thrilled with couchsurfing. I've Csurfed, hosted, met fellow couchsurfers where I live, participated in several CS Groups, and have exchanged correspondences with people with whom I share things in common. I can't express how positive everything's been so far. I love meeting people from near and far, and couchsurfers in general seem to be kindred souls.
Overall, it has been a positive experience. There've been a few exceptions and as a result, I will now be checking references before hosting, so please contact me with plenty of advanced notice and specific dates when you plan to arrive.
Reading, swimming, taekwondo, yoga, meditation and wanting to practice Buddhist teachings more consistently.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Having come to study a doctorate in Mexico. It's been mind-blowing. Also, swimming with the dolphins with my daughter in Cancún.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to cook, swim, am an excellent writer, speak several languages (English, Spanish, German), and am knowledgeable about health and nutrition. I can knit. Anything I can do I'll teach.
