One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've hitchhiked solo through 29 US States & 8 countries.
I unicycled during the World Trade Organization protest in Hong Kong & was deported.
I dewormed over 150 children in the indigenous highlands of Guatemala.
I scuba-dove in Honduras amongst a whale shark.
I spent four days alone with no nourishment but the spirit in the mountains of Vera Cruz, Mexico.
Before moving to New Orleans, I was rarely in one place for more than four months so that lends itself to many amazing things.
Now, I live in a city of absolute magedy and it is beyond amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone has skills & knowledge to exchange! I'm into talking about current events, social relations, soulful exploration, & useful information for self-sufficient living...I also teach sexuality education, play the washboard, teach yoga, practice massage, crochet, bake, hulahoop, make paper, spin fire, read tarot...lots of random things I'd love to share.
