About Me


See the beauty and goodness in each day; each person that crosses my path.


I live in the country and love to garden and keep bees; Its so great to wake up to the sounds of nature. I work and enjoy my work but its not the central focus of my life now. Enjoy my rural alternative community, family and friends; Love to host dinner parties and house concerts as community fund raisers.


Live life to the fullest - this doesn't have to be wild and extravagant mostly to me means just appreciating the beauty and goodness in each day and each person. Take opportunities when they present themselves and make the most of it; they are gifts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


New to CS so haven't gotten invloved yet


New to CS summer 2012; But informal CS in my younger day - hitchhicking in the Martine provinces of Canada, Switzerland; and Southern Africa.


Travel; languages, nature, being physical active, community, family, cooking especially healthy options, wine. Memorizing poetry to recite in different venues.

Books - fiction, travel, poetry
