About Me

hello hola bonjour namaste 你好
i'm pete =)
LOVE LIGHT SOUND & A SQUIRREL MONKEY life everyday as it comes...

"i'm an oxymoron"
an introverted loudmouth with both hands held out
whispering in shouts...

a fighter for love with 2 left feet
a cross eyed sharpshooter like cupids idiot twin...

i'm life intimidating art till its a shrinking violet
that I cut and press between the pages of my rhyme book...

i'm a conscious mc
that's steadily becoming contradictory in the 21st century...

an illiterate author like the cave dwelling finger painters
cattle grazing as I star gaze at constellations...

the sum of all variables in an equation
the alpha / omega with space for more calculation...

a conscientious objector

a violent pacifist

a couch bound activist

and all of this makes me a depressive optimist...

i am what you see me as

the personification of views and opinions
shaped by fingers pointing in my direction...

i only know i exist because i can see you
and yet my thoughts are the only things i can prove...

each infinitesimal aspect of my personality
is parts of society magnified a million times...

so when i'm asked who am i?
i say i'm 'ME' reflected in the mirror
and turned upside down...

making 'ME' 'WE

And that's the basis for my whole philosophy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

it started when i bought a one way ticket to peru and lived in the jungle with the shipibo indians.

mucho amor para mi amigos de pucallpa, lima, trujillo, huanchaco, cusco y arequipa.

bolivia was loco!

sembrando semillas con yoga, the project in the mountains of cusco, you'll always be in my heart. thank you for showing me the light. and to my beautiful monkey angelica! i miss you x

and shout out to all my aussie family! what a trip, what a year!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

peru is the most magical place i've been up to this point. from living with a shaman in the amazon, to travelling with my squirrel monkey angelica, celebrating my birthday on machu picchu, helping a children's charity and learning about yoga and meditation at the same time, meeting so many cool people, making friends for life, my teachers marisol, christian and yogacharia tonmoy shome. sleeping in a mayan temple at full moon then getting kicked out and chased by dogs. bolivia was just as amazing. camping on isla del sol, celebrating todo santos with the locals, partying in la paz, crossing the slat flats in a landrover, sandboarding, surfing, falling in love!
