i enjoy most music, with maybe a short tolerance for celtic, zydeco, klezmer, or the more manic pieces among the baroque.

Now reading On The Road and Darkness Visible

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.
