Play in a blues band.
All day, every day, I follow my heart. Worldly goods don't distract me. I'm never bored as I walk and take the bus, thinking about current projects.
I remember the grownups discussing whether we should be in the Second World War or not after they listened to Hitler's speeches replayed with translations on the radio.
Apparently, I don't need anything I wanted, because I don't have it, and I'm blissful.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I recently acquired a sailboat in San Pedro, CA, where I can host when I'm there.
Since I joined this group, I have hosted several couchsurfers on my boat in Los Angeles, stayed with a host in Germany, helping with her house and garden, and stayed with a host in London for one week. Before the internet was invented, several visitors stopped over at our family farm. Some stayed for years at a time.
Jazz, writing, forthright honesty, self-help peer support, homestead farming, independence, green business, peace, survival (but I'm not hysterical about it).
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Bill Evans, Charlie Parker, Chet Baker, Stan Goetz, Ray Charles, Sarah Vaughn, Norah Jones, Steely Dan, Willie Neslon; Debussy, Ravel, Faure.
Movies: About sixty years ago, a movie, Viva Zapata, helped me to become a pacifist. The Fabulous Baker Boys is an accurate depiction of the culture of jazz performance, except that they omitted some of the drug addiction in the original script.
Books: Calvin and Hobbes, Doonesbury, Please Understand Me II, The Trial of Socrates by Plato, Catcher in the Rye. Break a Leg's trail journal at http://trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=85724
