What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
Fredericton is a town-sized capital city; small, but plenty of arts and culture. Personally, I love the abundance of green space, outdoor recreation areas, and the great trail system for walking/cycling.
What turns you on creatively?
Hmm. I’ve always had a desire to create; whether it’s building something with power tools and wood, drawing, or writing. Reading a writer who has a unique voice or style, is always exciting for me. The same goes for looking at exciting visual art, or hearing a great piece of music.
What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
I love baseball…so…maybe…baseball? Lol.
She watched as the baseball collided with the barrel of his bat, and wished it was her fleeing into the right field gap with the same explosive velocity.
What is your pet peeve?
People who drive at night with their high-beams on in the city, and drivers who do not stop for pedestrians at crosswalks. Be considerate. I hate being unnecessarily blinded while walking with my dog in the evening.
