About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live free and to be there.

ABOUT ME

All about me? Well, my life seems to have a mind of its own. Once I think I am settled something big happens but this is always for the best, or maybe its just the way it is. When I was a kid I believed in magic, later I thought I came to understand life, then I began to live, now I know less and less and the mystery highlights my senses. So, I try new things realizing that it is not in the thinking about life that I can come to know it, rather, it is in experiencing life that I come to feel it. An now I am off on another adventure.

PHILOSOPHY

Just jump, and see what catches you.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

music exchange, and general conversation. If I can host then I will, otherwise meet for coffee and conversation.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All over Europe. Planned and unplanned meetings and housings. I hate it when people say "this changed my life," but, I it did, well, at least it helped to change me.

Interests

Well, reading (Dostoevsky, Carver, Elliot, Poe, and many more, I love a book that can make me question reality, Dostoevsky's writing does it - read his book The Possessed and you will see. Writing (my feeble attempt to entertain others, well it keeps me entertained. Swimming, rock climbing, meditation, misspelling things, and random acts of confussion. Lastly, genuine people (we are blind in this carnivalle, blind, flawed, yet so original if we only look and listen.)

Music, Movies & Books

Everything by Dostoevsky. T S Elliot, Babel, Poe, Dumas, Bunin. Love music, want to hear more (Jose Gonzales, Johnny Cash, Damian Marley, Leonard Cohen,and, recent addition, Ennio Marricone; and much more. Movies: Great Expecttion, Matrix, Stigmata, Good Will Hunting, The Lost Boys, Gladiator, Devils Advicate; thats all for now

One Amazing Thing I've Done

All of Summer 2008. And, rock-climbing.
