PHILOSOPHY

Revolutionary Quietist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be of service to interesting people. Hospitality has now almost entirely lost its meaning.
AirBnB is responsible for many evils.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE (as a traveller) :

One experience which was bad.
One experience which was very good.
One experience which was excellent.

Interests

Philosophy, history, classical musics, poetry, painting, 12th century sculpture, megaliths, plants, dogs, food (vegetarian), wines, vernacular architecture, photography...many of these expressed on my websites listed above.

Pour les francophones - je suis d'accord avec mon voisin Steven Daures (sur ce site-ci - https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/steven-daures) : "Curieux, contre le gaspillage et la surconsommation ridicule.
lié au vivant et à la terre, la futilité du consumérisme ; la télé et les i-phones sont bannis de mon mode de vie." Comme lui, j'adore les nocturnes de Chopin, ainsi que les musiques classiques iraniennes, arabes, indiennes, japonaises et chinoises. Je suis petit peintre et écrivain.
