About Me

The world was made for me and I am dust.
Joy. Breathe. Joy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i've held my sisters right knee during the births of all three of her children. i am grateful and amazed.

they are all so different, and in ways that one could relate to the varied environments into which each was born. fascinating.

Teach, Learn, Share

i have found the groups and group postings to be very helpful in making friends while visiting a place.

it is more beneficial to all involoved to find a host that you are interested in and approach them individually, rather than group posting for a couch. i do not respond to group posts for a couch.
