About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I honestly can't say. I think perhaps it changes daily.

ABOUT ME

This is never fun. What do I write about myself? I like creative activities. I also enjoy sitting still like the hummingbird. Actually, take a look at my "interests." That will tell you quite a bit. Additionally I'm a tidy, well-mannered, quiet guy who gets along well with most anybody. Enjoy drinking occasionally, and going out to a bar, but prefer to spend my time with a book, a pad and pen, or a laptop, quietly. I also love just wandering around new places, or old places, with my trusty Leica camera. Conversation is good if not forced -- there is something to be said about enjoying the company one is in simply for their presence.

PHILOSOPHY

"We should understand everything both ways, not just from one standpoint. We call someone who understands things from just one side a tambankan. This means 'a man who carries a board on his shoulder.' Because he carries a big board on his shoulder he can not see the other side."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed, but not yet hosted, and, as I am living with my parents now in preparation for a lengthy, future trip I'm not sure when I will be able to, unfortunately.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

it's been good, though the few times i've been requested a place to stay (when I was living in Racine with my girlfriend) I checked my email too late (and, so, apologized to the requester), thus I haven't yet had an experience to host. The times that I have surfed though have been really really good.

Interests

coffee, nature, haiku, poetry, photography, art of various types, wondering, pondering, philosophizing, the world, existence, peace, cycling, hiking, outdoors, nostalgia, crosswords, other things, and coffee

Music, Movies & Books

Alan Watts
Henry Miller
Shunryu Suzuki
Smoking Popes
Seinfeld

One Amazing Thing I've Done

the daily occurrences of everyday life, but also
cycling across much of the states of Utah, Colorado, and Nebraska,
roaming around Europe for nine weeks alone, but, back to my first point,
simply setting foot outside your door, you may see anything

Teach, Learn, Share

Oh my. I don't know. I don't know much of anything. I think most times I am a student, but maybe sometimes a teacher as well.

Countries I've Visited

Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, United States

Countries I've Lived In

United States
