Dear Ottawa,

 I love you, I really do. From the bottom of my heart you truly feel like home. From the Parliament buildings to the fantastic humans that make-up this city, you've stolen my heart. We live in a city rich with nature, beautiful architecture, and exciting events. You have been changing over the years, transforming, and evolving. I think you're heading in a positive and dynamic direction. I have  noticed the change in the independent art scene and I can't wait to see where you go from here. To all the creative minds, the technical minds, and the people helping to develop this wonderful city: I just wanted to say thank you for being you.
