About Me


All of us have at one time or other been hurt and hurt others, therefore - from birth to death hurt as few persons as possible.


I want it said of me: I came, I saw, I loved, I hurt, I read, I laughed, I cried, I helped, I lived.


If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new, so I will listen more than speak; will ask more than tell.


none at present.


humankind interests me most... learning the ways & thoughts of all cultures. I love music & reading, gardening & cooking and... communing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Every book I read (well perhaps not every one) seems to leave an impression on me, from a little boy reading the book "Shane" to a man reading books like "Trinity" & "Angelas Ashes" (tho both are of Ireland & Irish don't compartmentalize me). Music is a passion and I love everything from simple ballads from all cultures to (as I get older.. and why is that?)classical. Sadly, I am not a big fan of Opera.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

raised wonderful children.

Teach, Learn, Share

Whatever one sees in me that is good, I will try to explain and share.
