If a picture says 1000 words then 1000 photos, say so much more...
I use Facebook (so do 300 000 000 others) so look over my profile there, and befriend me, tell me you are from Couchsurfing and we can connect faster...
Here are some descriptions from some of my friends...
August 1, 2006
Leon is a loose cannon busting out in all directions. He has a brave and loving heart but also a wild and wicked sense of humour, prone to razor-sharp jokes that ricochet off the walls and ceiling before landing plunk in the corner pocket...sometimes before he even realizes it's happened. He's a naive trampler of boundaries, pusher of buttons, and speaker of uncomfortable truths. His psychic field is very strong...when he feels uncomfortable he can make other people uncomfortable, but when he has a bit of space to relax he can make others feel good. He's learning hard and fast, standing his ground instead of running away -- and he's done a lot of running. Leon has mischievous eyes and a wide silly grin, big enough to swallow his whole foot. I love Leon.

Leon is unique being who displays his affection in often unseen and subtle ways. He may not have grown up in the warmest of places, but he invites warmth with every breath and every touch; if you don't like what he says or does, take ease in knowing that he welcomes all offerings.
You can ask Leon anything; I don't know if I've ever met a more open person in my life.
We all lose our center with the aquired challenges of the patterns of our family and peers; the important thing (imo) is to work through these challenges and share these lessons. Leon is doing this and I honour him for it.
I'm happy to have you as a friend, Leon; thank you.

Leon is the type of guy most people are freaked out about.
He does not fit into any pattern I know of.
Leon is in touch with something I'm not in touch with. I don't know if this is a good or bad place, but I don't feel like I've been where he's been.
Somehow, in the end, from far, when all else seems weird, fucked up, beyond comprehension... the thought of knowing that Leon graces this earth is comforting.
I don't really know Leon, any more than I know anybody else truly. But somehow, something deep in me says make I should keep him in your heart.
This might be the shittiest testimonial ever, but fuck, what can you say about those you love without knowing exactly why? So blow me if you don't like this testimonial...
...it wasn't optimism. It was the deep realization that, while the world was busy digging its grave, there was still time to enjoy life, to be merry and carefree, to work or not to work." -- Henry Miller.
What have we achieved in mowing down mountain ranges, harnessing the energy of mighty rivers, or moving whole populations about like chess pieces, if we ourselves remain the same restless, miserable, frustrated creatures we were before? To call such activity progress is utter delusion.
So much ill has been caused in the world from mans simple inability to sit still... Henry David Thoreau
We have attempted to separate the spiritual and the erotic, thereby reducing the spiritual to a world of flattened affect, a world of the ascetic who aspires to feel nothing.
The last of the human freedoms ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances; to choose one's own way.
I've a strong impression our world is about to go under. Our political systems are deeply compromised and have no further uses. Our social behavior patterns, interior and exterior, have proved a fiasco. The tragic thing is, we neither can nor want, nor have the strength, to alter our course. It's too late for revolutions, and deep down inside ourselves we no longer even believe in their positive effects. Just around the corner an insect world is waiting ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ and one day it's going to roll over our ultra-individualized existence. Otherwise, I'm a respectable Social Democrat.
