WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

London

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Writer, dancer, thinker, expert pro, pre and postcrastinator

TELL US WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE YOUR AGE?

Fabulous. Who knew it would be this good? No one told me!

WHAT DO YOU HAVE NOW THAT YOU DIDN’T HAVE AT 25?

Self-possession

WHAT ABOUT SEX?

 What about it?

AND RELATIONSHIPS?

Now I am no longer in the grip of schemas, those deeply embedded narratives I thought I had to forever pay homage to, I am free to connect with people… as they are. All relationships become deeper and more fulfilling when you heal the relationship with yourself

HOW FREE DO YOU FEEL?

 No longer suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. Free. To be me.

WHAT ARE YOU PROUD OF?

 My daughter.

WHAT KEEPS YOU INSPIRED?

Learning to surf the waves. Once you get on a good wave the feeling is exhilarating. And I’ve learned from long experience that another wave is always on the way…

WHEN ARE YOU HAPPIEST?

I don’t know. Any time.

AND WHERE DOES YOUR CREATIVITY GO?

On holiday sometimes. It always comes back.

WHAT’S YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF LIVING?

Acceptance. What’s the point of resisting?

AND DYING?

 It’s a profound transformation that I am looking forward to.

ARE YOU STILL DREAMING?

Of course.

WHAT WAS A RECENT OUTRAGEOUS ACTION OF YOURS?

I think it’s only outrageous to other people, but I really enjoy saying exactly what I think. About anything.
