ABOUT ME

hungry and foolish!

***

The worst mistake that you can make is to think you're alive when really you're asleep in life's waiting room.

PHILOSOPHY

"[...] The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving. It saves on introductions and goodbyes. The ride does not require explanation - just occupance. That's where you guys come in. It's like you come onto this planet with a crayon box. Now you may get the 8 pack, you may get the 16 pack but it's all in what you do with the crayons - the colors - that you're given. Don't worry about coloring within the lines or coloring outside the lines - I say color outside the lines, you know what I mean? Color all over the page; don't box me in! We're in motion to the ocean. We are not land locked, I'll tell you that.[...]" (waking life)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

one of the best experiences i've ever had..!

though CS is getting worse and worse, I still KNOW that there are many old school CSers out there, don't give up!

Interests

exploring small side roads in all the new cities i get to, fleamarkets and chaotic vegetable markets, hitchhiking and intuitive trust between people; coffee & cigarettes (i 99% quit cigarettes now though); painting, political art (adbusting&co), galleries and everything that can inspire me, dumpster diving, foodsharing,
smaller music and folk festivals! nature, hiking, walking with no destination, beautiful books and good poetry; flamenco, balkan, pizzica, (acid)jazz and folk; sometimes being alone; discovering - everything, everybody!
adrenaline, (day!)dreaming, photography, performances, theatre, swimming-surf-scuba, poetry slams, sambas & rhythms of resistance!
philosophy and politics, permaculture, urban gardening, degrowth, ecological economics, environmental justice & co!

...ALWAYS appreciate gooood and inspiring conversations with some (cheap?) red wine or cup of good tea! siiiii!
