Allow yourself to be idle, to dwell a moment, to delay and iterate. Use your hands to make something a machine could make much faster. Look for the beauty in the impermanent, the imperfect and the incomplete. Take your time.

I can no longer remember how the topic of cats arose, but as soon as I heard the anger coming out of this man I decided not to say a word; I listened, fixated. I was the only woman in the room. ‘Nasty animals, nasty animals,’ he repeated. He was looking right at me, though not with his eyes.

Exit

  • Typography

In the first weeks and months I wonder at the textures and surfaces of my new home like a visitor from another planet. I luxuriate in the vanguard sensuality of a new postcode. I collect up the tastes and gestures of homemaking that every move teaches me, each one a new way of being in the world. I cherish it, and pray it won’t be my last.

Francis was already beginning to regret blindly following Jurgen into the night; it was late, and they hadn’t even begun to recreate Savannah’s map.

Shameful

I felt more shame when working as a fashion model than I do working in porn. But then, I have no shame.

Tarot

‘I work with my own pack – I based it on the tarot de Marseille but I’ve modified the four suits with Celtic designs.’
