About Me


Tread lightly on this earth


I'm a free spirit who likes to travel and meet the world. I've lived at Twin Oaks community in Virginia for 18 years. Before community, I did personal private service jobs (ex, masseuse for an MS patient, also "au paired" a couple of kids, driving senior citizens to community centers). At Twin Oaks, I cook one day a week for a hundred people, pack seeds, help with food processing, drive people to doctors appointments and attempt to take care of people's health needs, etc, etc.


I try to live one day at a time, without any particular expectations. I like the Buddhist philosophy of non-attachment. To be healthy, a person should have a good laugh everyday.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm joining for traveling purposes and I'm willing to host people should they ever want to visit Twin Oaks.


I've WOOFed in Ireland and I've done my share of hitchiking, but I'm new to Couchsurfing.


Traveling, juggling, writing, exploring the human psyche.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all sorts of music, as for books, I've gone through different phases. I enjoy reading about personal life stories, people's travels and adventures.

I witnessed the dawn of civilization at Machu Picchu just as the sun rose.
