About Me


Interested in exploring the various cultures and regions of this fine world. Interested in the sustainable movement towards healthy and productive micro-communities that represent our ever-changing global community.


Natures of your kind, with strong, delicate senses, the soul-oriented, the dreamers, poets, lovers are almost always superior to us creatures of the mind. You take your being from your mothers. You live fully; you were endowed with the strength of love, the ability to feel. Whereas we creatures of reason, we don't live fully; we live in an arid land, even though we often seem to guide and rule you. Yours is the plenitude of life, the sap of the fruit, the garden of passion, the beautiful landscape of art. Your home is the earth; ours is the world of ideas. You are in danger of drowning in the world of senses; ours is the danger of suffocating in an airless void. You are an artist; I am a thinker. You sleep at the mother's breast; I wake in the desert. For me the sun shines; for you the moon and the stars. Your dreams are of girls; mine of boys...
-Herman Hesse in Narcissus & Goldmund


respect the earth, respect the peoples of the earth. everyone is different, everything is possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
