It's either leave only footprints or divide and conquer. I'm not sure. Maybe both.
They have been sworn to secrecy (and besides I know where they buried the bodies). One of the beauties of life (as long as you choose to look at it this way) is that you never know what someone else will say or do. I kinda like it that way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Just starting out. I'm looking forward to seeing what becomes of it.
Haven't done any via couchsurfing.com, but I have done a bit of Servas, and lots of crashing with friends. Mostly during a 2 year bicycle journey in Western Europe where I frequently met people while traveling and then went and visited them somewhere down the road.
Is this where I rave about how many things I'm interested in, giving myself subtle compliments right and left? Oh, OK: I'm interested in seeing the way our government works changed. Perhaps even to the point that some day we can do away with representative democracy and have direct democracy. Wouldn't that be great? In the meantime, hopefully we can move toward abolishing the electoral college, institute some kind of ranked choice voting, and fight disenfranchisement!
Music, Movies, and Books
Recently went on a book journey: "God Is Not Great," "The God Delusion," and am reading "Who Wrote The Bible." Not too much fiction in my life lately - even movie-wise I am trending more and more towards documentaries.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It's all amazing. It's all open to interpretation. I saw a neighbor girl carrying the trash to the community dumpster this afternoon, with her young brother in tow. He helped unload, and then climbed into the wheelbarrow for a ride home...
Teach, Learn, Share
I like to teach what I know. I've been known to give guitar lessons, skiing lessons, English lessons, and whatever else lessons (OK - computer lessons).
Had a blast the Summer of 2016, volunteering in 2 English language immersion programs - in Spain and in Poland. Would love to do that again.
