Friendly and Fun Loving Nashua Natives living in the Suburbs
We are New Hampshire natives. We live near a college and an ice cream store in a quiet neighborhood in Nashua, NH. Our home is a glorious mess of paintings, three wood-burning stoves, and a kitchen with a custom built brick rectangle that holds a gas cooking stove on one side and the fire place on the opposite side. It is the heart of the house.
The front yard has a picket fence and an attack rose bush that is home to 300 sparrows that can be heard screaming seven houses down the street. There are flowers everywhere and a fountain built out of granite. Chipmunks, squirrels, possums, and an irritable mother robin live in our yard.
The garden is not so productive so veggies are bought at the Ice Cream shop in the summer where LaVoie's Farm has a large food truck every summer.
Until recently, my husband was a state representative and alderman from Nashua. We encouraged the New Hampshire State legislature to do a study on the impact of the arts on the state's economy. The study would include income generated by art events, culture events, festivals, symphonies, museums, history, and visits to landmarks, film, plays. musicals, poetry slams, folk art and so on. The arts also provide training for volunteers, and apprenticeship in public speaking, set design, graphics for media and social marketing.
