FACTS ABOUT BRI
What was the last book you read without skipping any pages?
I recently re-read Mary Oliver’s Evidence. She is by far my favorite author/poet, and I can’t get enough of her work; it’s very easy to read through without skipping pages.
What’s your most bizarre talent?
I can tie a cherry stem in a knot in my mouth in under ten seconds.
What is your favorite classic Disney movie?
Probably Peter always liked the story of Neverland and find it interesting that the original book was rather dark. Plus, who wants to grow up?
