About Me

I'm Pascal! I do animated films, can make musical instruments (jarana) and can craft puppets! I currently am co-producing a radio show on adoption: www.outofthefog.news, Check it out! I love linguistics... so, I'll automatically accept you in my home if you speak farsi or ASL.

Come and join our little family! We are an intentional community in the heart of Montreal! We host free events and workshops and feed ourselves from dumpster diving. Do you have something you'd like to teach? A dish from your country, your language, your field of study, your knowledge on mushrooms, plant growing, music,...?

(We are a safe space for queers and people of color folks. We're on the 3rd floor, so not suitable for people with physical impairment.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmm... amazing things aren't really factual. But I have warm memories about spending all night on the beach with other astrophysic fanatics waiting for the solar eclipse.

What I Can Share with Hosts

========
QUOTES:
========

Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.

To love is to read a song from someone's heart and to sing it back to them.

We're not tourists, we're travellers. A tourist is someone who thinks about going home the moment they arrive. Whereas a traveller might not come back at all.

Crisis, Irony, Decline, Renewal, Ambiguity

Your garbage is my gold.
