I live in Vancouver. I have two loves: writing, and music. And I like them apart, or together, kind of like cream and sugar. I have pets and glasses and I make messes and cookies, and I go to concerts and the grocery store, and I have a thing for chocolate, and the Edmonton Oilers, and a habit of getting injured accidentally. I’m 27 years old and I feel much older than that some days, and much younger than that most of the time. really like navy, turquoise and navy and red. My most prized possessions are my records, my cranberry juice bottle of change (a memento), my guitar pick handed to me by Conor Oberst, my Cardinals rose watch, and my filled journals. I like photography and collecting records and I like mint tea a lot. I named this blog ‘New York Fruit Stand’ after one of my all-time favourite song lyrics: “I’m as calm as a fruit stand in New York and maybe as strange” from Damn Sam (I Love a Woman that Rains) by Ryan Adams, one of my all-time favourite artists. I keep a self-deprecation-with-a-smile demeanor, but I like to wish on stars and 11:11.
