About Me

CURRENT MISSION

we'll see

ABOUT ME

This makes me laugh, you? -- “Nature is a dark damp place where birds fly about uncooked."-- Oscar Wilde

All I need is a blanket and a floor.

PHILOSOPHY

"Arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places."
-Invisible Cities, Italo Calvino

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am new to CouchSurfing, but I've heard many good things about the project and am eager to see what awaits.

We can share stories, I hope, and make each other laugh and think. I like to talk love and politics.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great!

Interests

I am a bit of a study-rat, I like to read and talk about ideas with anyone that comes around.
