I relish in learning about other's stories and experiences!
I enjoy exploring, and occasionally diverting from my route to see where a random path leads.
I appreciate the arts; live music, contemporary art, performing arts, plays, symphony orchestras . . .
I enjoy home cooked meals, trying out new foods.
Desiderata by Max Ehrmann
"one of the many examples in the history of science showed that the prepared mind can see the road to progress where others see only a fortuitous event"
Life is long, do what you want!
What is meant to happen, will.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting when the opportunity to do so safely is presented.
I started by attending CS meetings and activities, then hosting events in an effort to activate the Tulsa CS group (star parties, trivia nights, potlucks, museum outings, river float trips).
Although it has been some time since I have organized an activity I am always up for meeting.
