E: Mine changes often as well, but my favourite musician at the moment would have to be Novo Amor who I just started getting into.

Guilty pleasure song:

B: I don’t believe in feeling guilty about listening to music, do what makes you happy.

E: Wild Thing by Tone-Loc.

B: Expressing gratitude and asking the universe for strength to overcome insecurities.

E: I don’t think we really have a set ritual but I guess it would be lots of breathing and encouraging each other.

Favourite local musician:

E: I second that.

E: For me, it’s Front St. in New West for the same reason.

Favourite park in your city:

B: Queen Elizabeth Park, because it used to be a volcano and the flowers are stunning and because one of my previous pets (Art) lives at the Bloedel Conservatory now.
