I'm interested in exploring. Everything. I love to travel
I'm not a contented person, but I'm very happy. I love what I do. I'm a modern dancer and choreographer who is transitioning out of full-time performing.
There is so much to see and hear and taste and try that I need more lives than just this one.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted many people over the years, but only a few through the Couchsurfing site. I like the app, but it doesn't always work, which I find frustrating. I think the messaging should work all the time! host people through Couchsurfing, but also people who are passing through and need a place to stay.
I've used CouchSurfing infrequently in the past year, but I've been traveling and staying in people's homes for more than 30 years. I love meeting people and getting the scoop on living in a city.
I garden, read, travel and have many more projects than I can ever hope to accomplish.

Music, Movies, and Books
Robertson Davies, Dorothy L. Sayers, Sherry Tepper, Laurie King, Jane Austen, Janice Weber, ... Those are just my most recent reads. I will read the back of cereal boxes if there isn't something else available.
Any music that isn't too loud.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
So many to choose from! I will never forget the road in South Dakota one April after a torrential rain - new black asphalt with bright yellow stripes, black sky to the East with the late afternoon sun lighting up last year's flaxen grasses and the new brilliant green grasses; then a cock pheasant flew across the road with all colors gleaming in the sunshine.
