About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To secure safe places for ONE MILLION WOMEN from all over the country to sleep when we descend on Washington, D.C., January 21, 2017, to show our strength, power and courage and demonstrate our disapproval of the new president and his values in a peaceful march. All are welcome. This event is inclusive of all and specifically centers around those who need this support the most: people of color, immigrants, the LGBT community, disabled citizens, trans people, and of course women. We are child friendly. Let's do this right. Invite your friends, family and co-workers. Spread the word! Let the world know we stand together!

ABOUT ME

I soak up everything I can get my hands on when I'm interested in a topic, then i drop it as soon as something shiny appears on the periphery. I'm happy to report that many of my idols (John Lennon & Freya Stark) were the same way. Freya is the reason why I'd love to see more of the Middle East -- and to learn Arabic.

I have for many years had one constant: photography. Filmmaking is something I'm learning more about, too.

Mostly I'm a very happy, curious, reasonably intelligent woman of 50+ years who came a little late to the game, but is no less enthusiastic than any 18 year old. I'm shy, but love meeting interesting people. I don't tolerate fools, but will do anything for you if I believe in you.

PHILOSOPHY

just show up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hopefully will participate more fully. I've enjoyed MOST of my couchsurfers. I've learned to be more choosy about who comes to stay with me. As long as you're not an illegal immigrant or hoping to start your career as a Tea Party politician, we should get along just fine. (I'm not kidding)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

See above. I haven't yet surfed on someone else's couch, but I'm planning on it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling alone amazes everybody else, so I'll say that. Traveling alone is my favorite way to travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

Survived a drug & alcohol addiction. Pretty good at helping other people (if they really want help) with those issues.

I would love to learn more about photography & filmmaking.

Want to some day live in Europe.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to share travel stories, growing-up liberal in the now-radical conservative Texas stories, movies we've seen, books we've read. I love a good conversation.
