About Me


Trying to get back to writing my book which is set in the CS "world"


In what seems the blink of an eye, I have raised three children, studied multiple fields, practiced law, been a barrista, a teacher, a writer, filled two passports, lived off of nothing, lived lacking nothing, cried, laughed, loved, lost, seen new lands, learned new languages, and not even begun to have all the experiences I hope to have.


Senses keep you present, presence keeps you open, when you are open there is nothing to fear.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am writing a book on the couchsurfing experience - not just in the sense of traveling but rather the beauty of the cultural exchange and the power of seeing the world as full of trusting and trustworthy people. With a bit of luck the book will be finished and published within the year. With a bit more luck it will be a best seller and the whole world will start couchsurfing! See for more.


I couchsurfed my way through Western Europe in 2006, New York for a few months, Eastern Europe in 2007, and spent a year in Sighisoara, Romania, turbo hosting! It is time to center again (not to mention pad the bank account) before branching back out. Meanwhile I'm hosting and traveling when possible. Who knows what CS experience is next!


Writing, Traveling, Reading, Meeting New People, Nature, Quantum Mechanics, Metaphysics, Philosophy, the list goes on...

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies that make you think.
Music that makes you feel.
Books that make you reconsider what you thought you knew.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How could I name just one? I've given birth to a child, seen the Grand Canyon at sunset, immersed in a foreign culture, made lifetime friends, watched the internet revolution, fallen in love, walked the streets of London, Paris, Rome, Prague, Amsterdam, and many others in one little lifetime, touched moments of pure bliss, and cried tears of exquisite agony. Isn't it all amazing when you really think about it?

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll teach anything I know. Learn anything you can teach me (that doesn't have to do with politics) and share my experiences.
